Marking a major diplomatic development in recent months and coming at the end of nearly three month-long face off between India and China in Doklam sector, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today held bilateral talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

“I congratulate you for the success of the BRICS Summit this year,” Prime Minister Modi told the Chinese President during bilateral talks attended among others by Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar and National Security Adviser.

Chinese President Xi Jinping also said that his country is also working together with India. Both the leaders also shook hands for a while and posed before the lensmen and TV cameras for recording the historic moment.

The bilateral parleys took place on the sidelines of BRICS Summit. The “face-off” at Doklam tri-junction had begun around 16 June when Chinese People’s Liberation Army troops began constructing a road in the Doklam sector.
