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

Xi and Modi held their second informal meeting in the southern Indian city of Chennai following their first in the central Chinese city of Wuhan in April past year.

The second round of the informal summit between Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping kicked off on Saturday morning in the state of Chennai.

There was an acknowledgement that both India and China were "very complex and very diverse countries" and both would work together so that radicalization and terrorism did not affect their multicultural, multiethnic and multireligious societies, Gokhale said.

Kashmir was not raised in the two days of talks, Indian Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale said.

From any point of view, China and India should be good neighbors who live in harmony and work together as good partners, Xi said, noting that realizing a scenario where the dragon and the elephant dance together is the only correct choice for the two countries and is also in the fundamental interests of both countries and peoples.

The first meeting between the two leaders was in the Chinese city of Wuhan previous year, where they held six rounds of talks, in addition to some delegation-level discussions. Modi hosted a private dinner for Xi at the temple complex after their talks.

"The Wuhan summit instilled a new momentum and trust in our relations and today's "Chennai vision" is the start of a new era in India-China relations", PM Modi said. "This will be a memorable experience for me and us", Xi Jinping said.

Xi also assured Modi that India's concern on trade issues will be taken into account.

Modi said that "plogging" is popular in foreign countries, and praised Belvi for promoting it in India.

Tangen argued that India, as a member of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) and the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, has much to gain economically from a relationship with China in terms of investment and infrastructure.

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.

Modi and Xi recognized that India and China have a common interest in preserving and advancing a rules-based and inclusive global order, including through reforms that reflect the new realities of the 21st Century.
