Chinese FM to hold bilateral talks with Sushma Swaraj in Delhi

New Delhi, Aug. 11 : Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi will arrive here tomorrow on a three-day official visit to India during which he will hold talks with External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on important issues of bilateral, regional and multilateral interest.

"Wang Yi is arriving tomorrow and will be here for three days. He will be in Delhi during which he will meet the External Affairs Minister and he will also call on some other dignitaries and he will also be going to Goa which is the site of the BRICS Summit," said MEA official spokesperson Vikas Swarup.

He said the discussions between both leaders will include all important issues of bilateral, regional and multilateral interest.

However, ahead of its Yi's visit to India, state-owned Chinese media has warned New Delhi to refrain from "unnecessary entanglement" in the South China Sea issue and instead focus on trade between the two countries.

An opinion piece in the Global Times hinted at trade imbalance between the two countries. It said that India's focus on the South China Sea issue could risk unnecessary side effects to the ties between New Delhi and Beijing and potentially set up obstacles for Indian exporters hoping to increase their presence in China.
