Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping will hold an informal summit in China's central city of Wuhan from April 27 to 28 to improve Sino-Indian ties. According to China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi, Prime Minister Modi will be visiting Wuhan at the invitation of President Xi. During the summit, Modi and Xi will try to formulate a new paradigm for India-China bilateral ties, which have been bogged down by a host of disputes and differences like last year's Doklam standoff, informed sources told news agencies.

The announcement comes amid External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj's visit to China for talks with Wang and to take part in Monday's two-day foreign ministers meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO).
