Head of five nations condemn Pakistan based extremist groups

Prime Minister Narendra Modi being welcomed by a Chinese girl on his arrival at Gaoqi International Airport in Xiamen, China on Sunday to attend the 9th BRICS Summit 2017. "I believe my colleagues have said from this podium that as a host China will arrange meetings with participating leaders", foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said.

The meeting has been scheduled days after the two countries withdrew their troops after two-and-half-month border standoff at Doklam in the Sikkim sector.

China is willing to work with India to improve political mutual trust, promote mutually beneficial cooperation, and "push Sino-Indian ties along a right track", Xinhua quoted him as saying. The reporter, Tang Yuangai works for the Hindi service department of China Radio International and no matter what differences India and China now have, she was vocal about her love for India and its people!

BRICS is composed of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa - countries that are among the five fastest growing economies in the world.

Indian foreign secretary S. Jaishankar said the two sides took a forward-looking and constructive approach during the meeting between the two leaders.

"The two sides should respect each other, seek common ground while reserving differences and safeguard the peace and tranquility of the border areas", Geng said, quoting Xi. The meeting on the sidelines of the Brics Summit began around 10.30 am Indian Standard Time, after the Brics summit. India said the Chinese decision to build a road in the area impacted New Delhi's strategic interests. India responded by sending troops to evict the Chinese military's workers.

The nations of the BRICS grouping strongly deplore North Korea's nuclear test but the problem over its nuclear programme should only be settled through peaceful means and dialogue, they said in a draft communique seen by Reuters on Monday.

While some analysts argue this indicates the possibility of China rethinking its position on Azhar, others note China has signed on to similar anti-terror declarations (though these specific outfits had not been named) at earlier summits. The sense is that both countries want to "move on" after the standoff.
