Gokhale said that the two leaders agreed that Special Representatives from India and China will have to be more involved to make efforts to come to a mutual settlement on border talks.

Maintaining peace along India-China border region and issuing strategic guidance to respective militaries.

That both leaders agreed to expand trade cooperation and emphasised consensus over conflict showed that China and India wanted to move beyond last June's border stand-off in the light of more pressing concerns, such as a possible trade war, said experts.

The meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has become a new milestone in the development of bilateral relations, a Russian expert said Saturday. Socialism with Chinese characteristics has entered a new era and Modi also proposed the goal of building a "New India", he said, adding that on the road to development and revitalisation, China and India face similar tasks.

The two leaders agreed to push forward bilateral trade and investment in a balanced and sustainable manner by taking advantage of complementarities between their two economies. China while trying to expand its influence in Kabul has tacitly backed Pakistan, which has been accused by Afghanistan and the U.S. of backing the Taliban.

Why is China constructing the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) that we consider as an integral part of India.

China-India relations date back centuries but in recent decades have been characterized by competition for leadership in Asia.

"The border incident last summer was just one example of what mutual suspicion could lead to, reminding both sides of the disruptive potential of distrust". "They believe that such strategic communication will have a positive influence on enhancing mutual understanding and will contribute to regional and global stability", Gokhale said.

"China and India are both important engines for global growth and we are central pillars for promoting a multi-polar and globalized world".

Modi and Xi recognised the common threat posed by terrorism and committed to cooperate further on counter-terrorism, Gokhale said.

In February, Beijing lodged an angry protest with New Delhi over a trip by Modi to the state.

Both agreed that meetings on the lines of the Wuhan summit will determine the future direction of India-China relations.

"As for whether India accepts the expression Belt and Road, I think it is not important and China will not be too hard on it", he said.

The BRI has injected "fresh vitality" to Asia's economic cooperation and helped the continent reshape its worldwide relations, said the Asian Competitiveness Annual Report 2018 released here on the sidelines of China's Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) annual conference.

On day 1 of the 'heart to heart summit, ' a group of Chinese musicians surprised Prime Minister Modi by playing the famous Bollywood number, which garnered praises from all over.
