Swaraj, Chinese FM hold talks under new framework

In yet another step towards improving ties, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and her Chinese counterpart Wang Yi Friday held extensive talks under a newly established framework and agreed on “ten pillars” of cooperation to enhance cultural and people-to-people exchanges.

Wang, who arrived to India early Friday morning, said that he had a “very successful” meeting with Swaraj under the ‘High Level Mechanism on Cultural and People-to-People Exchanges’ that was decided upon during the Wuhan summit between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Xi Jinping

“India-China relations have reached a new historical stage,” he said at the inaugural session of 3rd India-China High Level Media Forum.

Swaraj, in her remarks, said she was satisfied with the outcome of her two-hour dialogue with Wang during which they discussed ways to expand cultural and people-to-people ties.

She said that India and China have agreed on ’10 pillars’ of cooperation to enhance cultural and people-to-people exchanges.
