New Delhi, April 26: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said he and Chinese President Xi Jinping will review Sino-Indian relationship from a strategic and long-term perspective during their meeting in Wuhan on April 27-28.

“President Xi and I will exchange views on a range of issues of bilateral and global importance,” Modi said.

“We will discuss our respective visions and priorities for national development, particularly in the context of current and future international situation,” the Prime Minister added.

“We will also review the developments in the India-China relations from a strategic and long-term perspective.”

The upcoming meeting indicates a revival in ties between India and China, which witnessed rough patch after a 73-day military stand-off between the two countries on the Doklam plateau last year.

Earlier, this week External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman visited Beijing to participate in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) ministerial meetings.

Besides the cross-border row, a score of issues plague India-China ties.

China’s opposition to India’s entry into the Nuclear Suppliers Group and its application at the UN to declare Pakistan-based Masood Azhar as the international terrorist are some other irritants.
