Xi Jinping meets Indian Prime Minister Modi
Xinhua News Agency, Brasilia, November 13 (Reporter Yang Yijun Chen Shan) on November 13, local time, Chinese President Xi Jinping met with Indian Prime Minister Modi in Brasilia.
Xi Jinping pointed out: not long ago, I held a successful meeting with you in Chennai and had a very good conversation on the international and regional situation and major issues in bilateral relations. The relevant departments of the two countries are stepping up the implementation of the consensus reached by us and extending and expanding the positive effects of the Chennai meeting. Last week, India participated in the second session of China International Import Expo as the guest of honor. It is understood that the transaction volume of the Indian side has increased significantly compared with the previous session, and is the largest increase in transaction volume of the exhibitors. China welcomes India's efforts to increase exports of high-quality goods to China. The two sides should expand the scale of two-way trade and investment and create new growth points for cooperation in the fields of production capacity, medicine, information technology and infrastructure construction. It is necessary to jointly organize next year's "China-India year of Humanities Exchange" and the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and India, so as to promote people-to-people. China and India should make joint efforts, adhere to multilateralism, safeguard the multilateral trading system with the World Trade Organization at the core, jointly safeguard the legitimate development rights and interests and development space of developing countries, and promote BRICS cooperation to move steadily and far ahead.
Xi Jinping stressed: I am willing to maintain close communication with you, jointly grasp the direction of bilateral relations, enhance political mutual trust, properly manage differences, expand practical cooperation, and lead the better and more stable development of Sino-Indian relations. 2020 is coming, and it is hoped that Sino-Indian relations will achieve new and greater development in the new year. I welcome you to meet again in China next year.
Modi said that our two meetings in Wuhan and Chennai have deepened trust and friendship. Many of the important consensus we have reached are being implemented. The Indian side congratulated the second China Expo on its complete success, and hoped to continue to expand bilateral trade and investment with China, expand cooperation in energy and other fields, and make joint efforts to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations and the year of people-to-people exchanges between the two countries next year. I look forward to continuing to maintain close exchanges with you, properly manage differences, lead bilateral relations to achieve more results, and continue to move to new heights.
