Hangzhou(China): In a firm response to China’s opposition to designate Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azahar as a terrorist in United Nations, the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in G-20 summit said, “The response to terrorism must not be driven by any political consideration.”

The Indian PM held bilateral talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping and raised a number of issues including terrorism and China’s opposition regarding India’s membership in the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG). PM Modi also raised concerns regarding China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) being laid through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and said that India, China must respect each other's aspirations, concerns and strategic interests.

The CPEC is a collection of projects currently under construction intended to rapidly expand and upgrade Pakistani infrastructure and deepen economic links between Pakistan and China. The $46 billion project is considered to be an extension of China’s ambitious ‘One Belt, One Road’ initiative.

China willing to work with India, said President Jinping:

  • The Chinese President Xi Jinping, during the bilateral talks with the Indian PM stated, ‘China is willing to work with India to maintain their hard-won sound relations and further advance their cooperation.”
  • Jinping also praised PM Modi's leadership of the Indian economy. Appreciating PM Modi’s energy policy, Jinping said that the two countries should constructively handle their differences.
