Brics summit: India and China leaders mend ties

China wants to put its relationship with India on the "right track", President Xi Jinping told Prime Minister Narendra Modi at a meeting in Xiamen, the official Xinhua news agency reported on Tuesday. Both North Korea's nuclear test and the border standoff between China and India were also discussed.

In his opening remarks, Modi congratulated Xi for the "very successful" execution of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) Summit.

The meeting with Xi was Modi's last appointment in Xiamen before he left for his state visit in Myanmar. However, on verification, both sides are now at the pre-June 16 position, which effectively means that China has stopped its road construction activities in Doklam region's Dolam plateau for now. This is the first time PM Modi met Chinese President Xi Jinping after the tense two-and-a-half month standoff between Indian and Chinese armies at Doklam.

The ten noble commitments suggested by PM Modi included creating a safer world by "organized and coordinated action on at least three issues: Counter Terrorism, Cyber Security and Disaster Management".

"Both the leaders at their meet at Astana in July had agreed that India and China are natural large powers and that there will be areas of differences".

He said the Dialogue of Emerging Market and Developing Countries has sent "a strong message" for closer South-South cooperation and global development cooperation.

"China and India must maintain the fundamental determination that each other constitute mutual development opportunities and do not constitute a mutual threat", Xi said, adding that peaceful, cooperative relations were the "only correct choice".

Xiamen: Putting behind the Doklam stand-off, India and China on Tuesday agreed to take the bilateral ties "forward" and make more efforts, including strengthening co-operation between their security personnel, to ensure that such incidents do not recur.

Russia, for example, benefited a lot from the BRICS mechanism when it had conflict with European countries previous year, and China has received support from other BRICS nations as well on the South China Sea issue, Wu said.

Asked if both the countries have left behind the Dokalam episode, he said, "It was a forward-looking conversation.And not a backward-looking one".
