Sujatha Singh in Beijing for strategic dialogue

Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh on Saturday arrived to take part in the sixth India-China Strategic Dialogue next week during which the two nations will review the status of bilateral relations and explore new initiatives to improve ties.

Ms. Singh will co-chair — along with her counterpart Vice Foreign Minister Liu Zhenmin — the annual dialogue to be held on April 14.

The two sides will review the entire range of bilateral relations, including plans for leadership-level visits in the second half of this Year of India-China Friendly Exchanges, India’s External Affairs Ministry said ahead of her visit.

She would also call on Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi after the talks during her two-day visit.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said early this week that the two sides will have in-depth exchanges on bilateral ties, high-level exchanges, practical cooperation, international and regional issues of mutual concern.

“This dialogue is an important activity under the China-India friendly exchanges of the year 2014. We believe it will enhance our strategic communication, friendly exchanges and practical cooperation and provide a strong boost to stable and sound relationship between the two countries,” Mr. Hong said.
