NEW DELHI -- Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed to increase communication between their militaries and continue meetings intended to defuse border tensions and build smooth relations between the Asian powers, in a two-day informal summit that ended Saturday.  

The meeting in the picturesque central Chinese city of Wuhan came less than a year after a 73-day military standoff on the Doklam plateau bordering Bhutan -- the longest such confrontation between the two countries in decades.
