Vice-President Hamid Ansari’s visit to China to mark the 60th anniversary of Panchsheel on June 28 will set the ball rolling for a series of high-level bilateral visits to strengthen the strategic and cooperative partnership between the two countries.

India, which will roll out the red carpet for Chinese President Xi Jinping later this year, is expecting “substantive outcome” from the visit. Mr. Ansari, who will leave for China on Thursday, will make Xian his first stop, before embarking on a visit to Beijing, where he is expected to hold several high-level meetings. Accompanied by Minister of State for Commerce, Nirmala Sitharaman and four Members of Parliament, Mr. Ansari is expected to call on the Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang and the President.
