Modi should not become complacent after successful summit with Xi

Kashmir and Pakistan are causing rift between India and China

| India

Chinese President Xi Jinping was in India recently for an informal summit with Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Mamallapuram, on the outskirts of the southern city of Chennai. This was the second informal summit between the two leaders; the first was in April 2018, not long after the Doklam border standoff in Bhutan between the two Asian behemoths.

By selecting Mamallapuram, New Delhi emphasized the historical connection between India and China: it is believed that the Chinese monk Hiuen Tsang had visited there in the 7th century.
