Modi greets Chinese President on arrival

IANS  |  Benaulim (Goa) 

Prime Minister Modi greeted Chinese President Xi Jinping on his arrival in on Saturday ahead of the BRICS Summit.

"India is delighted to host President Xi Jinping for the @BRICS2016 Summit. May his visit further strengthen India-China relations," Modi tweeted.

Xi was given a red carpet welcome after he got off the aircraft at the Dabolim Airport and was received by Minister of State for External Affairs V.K. Singh.

Modi is scheduled to hold a bilateral meeting with Xi for nearly half an hour on Saturday evening at the Taj Exotica resort here.

India and China are expected to discuss the fallouts of the deadly cross-border terror attack on an army camp at Uri on Jammu and Kashmir last month attack by Pakistan-based, while India will make a pitch with its eastern neighbour to further isolate Islamabad, for backing terror infrastructure.

The arrival of Jinping in Goa, coincided with protests by Tibetan protesters at Margao town, 35 km from Panaji, demanding China vacate its illegal occupation of Tibetans.

Nearly 43 Tibetan protesters were detained by the police, subsequently.

The eighth BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) Summit will be held here on Sunday, which will be followed by a signature ceremony and a meeting with the leaders of the member states of Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation (Bimstec).
