PM Modi leaves for Myanmar for first bilateral visit

05 September 2017

With Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to China for the BRICS Summit, media reports hint that there could be a bilateral meeting between PM Modi and China's Premier Xi Jinping.

Chinese President Xi Jinping addresses the ninth BRICS summit in Xiamen, southeast China's Fujian Province, Sept. 4, 2017. "But where there is an area of difference, it should be handled with mutual respect and efforts should be made to find common ground", he said. In the last two years, China has stonewalled efforts by India and later by the U.S., the United Kingdom and France to declare Azhar as a terrorist, stating that there is no consensus on the issue.

Xi told Modi that "healthy, stable bilateral ties" were "in line with the fundamental interests" of the neighbours, the official Xinhua news agency said. India and China are often described as geopolitical rivals, and the two remain locked in a border dispute.

The announcement and North Korea's claim that it could mount the warhead on a missile, dramatically upped the stakes in Pyongyang's standoff with the global community over its banned weapons programmes.

India listings enjoy peak travel from the other four BRICS nations in winter, with January being the peak month.

In the op-ed, Reif calls upon Congress to pass legislation protecting the DREAMers, and asks Trump to allow Congress time to act. The policy was enacted in 2012 and President Obama sought to expand it in 2014, but was prevented by a lawsuit from 26 states.

Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa on Monday agreed in a joint declaration to strengthen cooperation against a range of terrorist organisations, including some allegedly based in Pakistan.

"We express concern on the security situation in the region and violence caused by the Taliban, ISIL/DAISH, Al-Qaida and and its affiliates including the Haqqani network, Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammad, TTP and Hizb ut-Tahrir", the declaration said. "We recommit to our existing pledge for both a standstill and a rollback of protectionist measures and we call upon other countries to join us in that commitment", the declaration said.

The ASI will be undertaking further restoration work on a number of pagodas and murals that were damaged in an quake a year ago, he said.

"We will also look at strengthening our existing cooperation on security and counter-terrorism, trade and investment, skill development, infrastructure and energy, and culture", the post added.

Jaishankar added that there were "detailed discussions" on a mechanism which could help both countries to move forward on an "onward trajectory".
