NEW DELHI:


Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit China in May, the foreign minister said on Sunday during her own three-day visit to Beijing.


“Mr. Modi is going to come in May. I will give them dates today. This is a preparatory visit,” Sushma Swaraj told Indian reporters in Beijing, according to the Press Trust of India (PTI) news agency.

Swaraj is holding three-way talks with her Chinese and Russian counterparts during the trip, her first official visit since she took office last year.

US president Barack Obama last week paid a high-profile visit to India aimed at bolstering ties between the two countries, which share an interest in curbing China’s growing regional influence.

Although neither side mentioned China by name during Obama’s three-day visit, the US president welcomed what he called a “greater role for India in the Asia-Pacific” and said freedom of navigation in the region must be upheld.

Modi is widely seen as taking a more assertive line on China than the previous government.

@WinChin: India is so poor that India Ended Polio among 1.3 billion people. India is so poor that India had successful Mission to Mars. India is so poor that it Built a software industry from nowhere. 20 years ago, Indian software industry was almost non-existent. Now, it has grown more than 100 times in 20 years. In the next decade, India would have a few dozen billion dollar software companies. India is soo poor that Over 200 million people have been brought out of illiteracy. India is soo poor that it has Golden quadrilateral and other new highways - Over 40,000 km of highways/expressways added in the past 15 years.
