Xi became the first Chinese leader in six decades to be feted at a public reception. A budding bonhomie between the two world leaders was on full display, as Modi and Xi took a stroll along the beautiful Sabarmati riverfront and sat side-by-side on a swing.

Both sides inked 12 agreements, one of which will see China investing $20 billion in India’s infrastructure over five years.

However, China has since repeatedly opposed India’s bid for entry into the NSG.

Over the last few months, relations between the two Asian giants had been on a downward trajectory over China vetoing India’s petitions to ban Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar in the UN Security Council, and its blocking of India’s NSG aspirations.

In the bilateral meeting with Xi, PM Modi had raised India’s concerns over the multi-billion dollar China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) being laid through PoK and told Xi that “to ensure durable ties and their steady development, it is of paramount importance that we respect each other’s aspirations, concerns and strategic interests”.

Amid a tense standoff between Indian and Chinese troops at the disputed border territory of Doklam, Prime Minister Narendra Modi informally met President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Germany and had a conversation on a range of issues. The fact that a formal bilateral meeting between the two leaders had not been scheduled was due to Beijing’s view that the “atmosphere was not right” for official dialogue between Modi and Xi.

After 73 days, the Doklam face-off was resolved through diplomatic channels and PM Modi and Xi Jinping held a substantive bilateral meeting at Xiamen.

Modi-Xi’s camaraderie once again made waves during the ‘Heart to Heart summit’ in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, where the two leaders had a series of one-on-one informal interactions. With Doklam still weighing on their minds, Modi and Xi decided that they will issue strategic guidance to their respective militaries to strengthen communications and to build trust and understanding.

No agreements were inked, nor any announcements made at the summit, since the focus of the two leaders was to take stock of and further strengthen bilateral relationships as well as the strategic and long term partnership between India and China.
