Modi has 'deep conversation' with Chinese Premier

By Nirendra Dev




Manila, Nov 14 (UNI) Maintaining to blow hot and cold policy towards China, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday held an one-on-one meeting with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang on the sidelines of ASEAN and East Asia Summits even as official spokesperson could not divulge details of their "lounge talks".

"Two neighbours in deep conversation. PM @narendramodi with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang on the margins of #EastAsiaSummit Summit in #Manila," the spokesman in the Indian Ministry of External Affairs Raveesh Kumar tweeted.

However, later during the customary post-Summit briefing, Mr Kumar could not divulge details of the talks between two leaders.

"You see this was a lounge meeting....and what happens that between any two Summits, there is a break. During that break all the leaders go to the lounge, so no body is there except the leaders....and the leaders talk to each other as well. As we indicated to you yesterday as well that Prime Minister (Modi) met several leaders ....Today also, he met many leaders including Chinese premier....None of us were there, so I am not able to share what exactly passed on between them," Mr Kumar said.

However, Mr Modi also sought to build up pressure on Pakistan and China and maintained that North Korea's proliferation links ought to be investigated and the parties who supported such "unlawful programmes" be made accountable.

The meeting between Mr Modi and his Chinese premier come on the backdrop of India joining the United States, Australia and Japan in floating the Quadrilateral tie up structure essentially to counter Chinese influence in the region and also globally.

It is worth mentioning that like the US; India too has been supporting freedom of navigation and access to resources in the South China Sea in accordance with principles of international law, including the 1982 UN Convention.
