  • Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived in India Friday for a summit with Prime Minister Narendra Modi

Xi and Modi held almost six hours of talks in an Indian seaside town in their second annual summit created to break through decades of distrust over border disputes, trade rows and China's close military ties with India's arch rival, Pakistan.

Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi agreed at a summit on Saturday to set up a high-level group to tackle India's galloping trade deficit with the world's second-biggest economy, a top Indian diplomat said.

Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi agreed Friday to promote exchanges and mutual learning among civilizations to achieve joint development and prosperity.

The host states of Tamil Nadu and Fujian province in China will establish sister-state relations and explore the possibility of setting up an academy to study links between Mamallapuram and Chinese cities.

Misri also stressed the importance of India-China cooperation under multilateral frameworks such as the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, BRICS and the G20. "Trade deficit is not economically sustainable and it is also something that is sensitive to the domestic industry", Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale said.

India has caused Trump to have doubt recently, as Modi also cozied up to Russian Federation in recent weeks, with Modi and Putin agreeing military collaboration and closer ties last month.

Answering journalists' questions following the talks, Mr. Gokhale said the new mechanism would also discuss the relaxation of visas for IT professionals. Modi, a conservative Hindu politician, said India and China have been economic powers that traded with one another "for the most part of the last 2000 years".

The New Development Bank and the China-initiated Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank are important contributions to development and investment finance, he said.

China has made considerable inroads in Nepal, which is traditionally under India's sphere of influence in the region.

When queried on the escalating trade war between the US-China, and the likely impact on the Indio-China trade, Gokhale said that there was no direct bearing on India-China trade on what is happening between the US and China. "India and China will continue to work together for open and inclusive trade arrangements that will benefit all countries", it added.

In the run-up to the informal summit, Indian officials had said that Modi will not raise the issue of Kashmir on his own, but could clarify Indian position if Xi sought a clarification. "We are able to bring forth closer cooperation between both countries", Xi said, while adding that the discussions have been "very in-depth" and "good". They have extended an invitation to Defence Minister to visit China.

China, for its part, was expected to urge India to take an independent decision on telecom equipment maker Huawei's bid for India's proposed 3G network and not be swayed by USA pressure.

Modi gave a personal tour to Xi of the Shore Temple, dating back to the seventh and eight century and other ancient monuments that are part of UNESCO's world heritage sites and which were emptied of all visitors for the two-day summit.
