Defence Minister Nimala Sitharaman today said she will visit China next month, which will be an important trip in the backrop of the strain in the ties between the two countries witnessed after the Doklam stand-off.
Sitharaman also said the government has responded to all the queries of the Congress in detail related to the Rafale deal.
The defence minister was responding to a question on the Congress' attack on the government over the aircraft deal, which the party claims has been done at much higher cost than another deal negotiated by the previous UPA government.
Replying to a question on her China visit, Sitharaman told reporters "Yes, (the visit is) probably sometime in late April."
She, however, did not elaborate on the agenda of the visit.
Despite the disengagement of troops from the Doklam site, the coldness between the two countries over the issue still persists.
However, there is also an increase in senior ranking officials visiting each other's countries post Doklam.
Wang was here to here to attend the foreign ministers meeting of RIC grouping comprising Russia, India and China.
