After greeting Nawaz Sharif, PM Modi to meet Xi Jinping today at SCO Summit amid chill in India-China ties

After greeting Nawaz Sharif, PM Modi to meet Xi Jinping today at SCO Summit amid chill in India-China ties

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping for the first time in nearly eight months in the framework of the SCO summit in Astana this morning and this could be his witness.

It is expected that Modi addresses a number of problems that have hampered relations between India and China, including the continued blockade of New Delhi sanctioning chief JeM Masood Azhar to the UN and economic corridor between China and Pakistan (PECC) Kashmir (POK).

Despite these controversial issues, leaders from both sides expressed the hope that Modi and Xi would at least try to revive bilateral relations in the face of the BRICS Summit in Xiamen in September. Among other things, the two leaders should emphasize the need for regular high-level interaction.

Modi and his Pakistani counterpart, Nawaz Sharif exchanged jokes during bilateral relations, blocked the talks and intensified hostilities along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir.

It was the first meeting between Modi and Sharif after their last meeting in Lahore December 25, 2015, when the Indian prime minister made a surprise visit.

Diplomats pointed out that a recent Modi statement was well received by China last week. “It is true that we have a border dispute with China, but in the last 40 years, no bullet was started due to the border conflict,” Modi said at a panel discussion during an economic event in St. Petersburg.

But differences between the two countries could still dominate discussions in the capital of Kazakhstan. With India focusing on terrorism at the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), Modi will raise the issue of combating terrorism in the region in a concerted manner.

This includes India’s efforts to show chief Jaish-e-Mohammed virtue of UN Security Council resolution 1267, which has been blocked repeatedly by China.

In addition Azhar, several other issues have emerged as irritants in bilateral relations. India recently boycotted the Belt and Road Forum (BRF) in Beijing organized to show flagship connectivity initiative Xi and China blocked India’s efforts to join Nuclear Suppliers Group, the elite club that controls the nuclear technology trade .

India was absent without a doubt the most outstanding high-level BRF in May attendance of almost 30 heads of state and representatives from other countries. China has tried various ways to persuade India to participate in the forum, but is known to concerns of the sovereignty of New Delhi in CPEC through PoK.

India has also been evident by its absence in the Exploration World Space Conference (GLEX) taking place in Beijing, where several international delegates surprised that the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) was present.

China, on the other hand, was enraged by the Dalai Lama’s Tibetan spiritual leader’s visit to Arunachal Pradesh in April, which Beijing claims as southern Tibet. That did not help, in relation to the Chinese, the Dalai Lama met President Pranab Mukherjee in December, the first time the Tibetan spiritual leader met with the President of India to serve for decades.

A number of ministerial visits in India will be scheduled in the coming weeks. Foreign Minister VK Singh is expected to attend the meeting of Foreign Ministers of the BRICS countries to be held in Beijing from 18 to 19 June

This will be followed by a meeting of national security advisers in Beijing from 27 to 22 July. NSA Ajit Doval is also the special representative of India to the talks on the border between China and India.
