China allows export of non-Basmati rice from India

Qingdao/New Delhi, June 9 (UNI) India and China on Saturday inked a MoU for amendment of Protocol on phytosanitary requirements for exporting rice from India to China to include non-Basmati rice.

With this agreement, India can now export non-Basmati rice to China. Beijing had denied access to the non-basmati rice on grounds that it failed to meet its standards. Today’s protocol updates an earlier agreement of 2006.

The two sides also signed a MoU on sharing of hydrological information of Brahmaputra river by China to India.

"Following PM Narendra Modi meeting with Chinese President Xi, two MoUs were signed - Sharing hydrological information of Brahmaputra river by China to India & amendment of Protocol on phytosanitary requirements for exporting rice from India to China to include non-Basmati rice,” Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said in a tweet.

The agreements were signed in the presence of Prime Minster Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping, who met on the sidelines of Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Summit.
