National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval visited China from 12-13 April 2018 and held talks in Shanghai with Yang Jiechi, Member of Politburo and Director of the Foreign Affairs Commission of the CPC Central Committee.
In a press statement, the Ministry of External Affairs said that the visit of NSA was part of regular high-level engagements between India and China.
The note also stated that the discussions covered a wide agenda spanning bilateral, regional and international issues of mutual interest and that the two sides agreed to maintain the pace of high-level exchanges, with a view to fully realize the potential of Closer Development Partnership between the two powers.
India and China have been at loggerheads due to Doklam tussle and also Chinese aggression in the South China Sea which has antagonized nearly all the nations in the region including Vietnam.
There have been multiple calls for greater involvement of India in this region to check the Chinese influence.
