“And in that context, the two leaders have agreed that a new people to poeple mechanism will be set up. It will be headed on the Indian side by the External Affairs Minister and on the Chinese side by the State Council and Foreign Minster Wang Yi and the first meeting of this P to P mechanism will be held this year,” he added
