With Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping having had informal heart to heart summit in Wuhan, it is now being said that the two armies would tone down the tensions.
This comes even as the Indian Air Force has recently stirred war games for a two front scenario with Pakistan and China, albeit without naming either.
The two armed forces would be directed not to allow another Doklam like episode which pitted the two countries against each other for over a month last year.
The decision can be termed as concrete outcome of the informal talks between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and China’s President Xi Jinping in Wuhan on Saturday.
The two leaders also agreed to set up a joint economic project in Afghanistan, which is strategically important to both nations.
As for Afghanistan, the details would be announced once the two sides decided on the project.
It is also said that specific irritants of the relationship like China’s opposition to Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar being labeled a terrorist by the UN — or to India’s membership of the Nuclear Suppliers Group were not brought up.
China however has conceded that Beijing would not force India to supporting the Belt and Road Initiative.>
