Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping held summit talks in Delhi today for 90 minutes, more than the allotted time. “There should be peace in our relations and at the borders. If this happens we can realise true potential of our relations,” Mr Modi said later, amid a stand-off in Ladakh, where Indian and Chinese soldiers are locked in an eyeball-to-eyeball confrontation at the border.¹

The Diplomat writes in summary: "Still, despite this strategic mistrust, the two countries will likely continue to build their relationship on a foundation of economic cooperation. Xi and Modi are expected conclude a deal on Thursday that will see over $100 billion in Chinese investment flow into India, dwarfing the recent $34 billion package Japan offered India. The two leaders may additionally discuss security issues, such as how New Delhi and Beijing can cooperate in Afghanistan following the withdrawal by NATO and U.S. troops at the end of this year. Earlier this summer, China invited India to attend the next summit of the APEC trade group, as well as inviting New Delhi to join in its Maritime Silk Road initiative — something that has been a major focus of Xi’s South Asia trip so far."²
