First major informal summit between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping will be held in Wuhan city of Central China on April 27 and 28.

The summit will have "important impact on peace in the region and the world at large", Wang Yi said, adding that the two sides were working to make this a new milestone in bilateral relations. It will also coincide with the historic meeting between the leaders of North and South Korea.

Xi and Modi "will set a general direction, identify new goals and create a new dynamic for the growth of China-India relations".

Commenting on Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) foreign ministers' meeting scheduled for Monday in Beijing, Chunying said, "It is the goal of the SCO to uphold regional security and stability and promote the common development and prosperity of its member states".

Modi has sought to re-set ties after disputes over issues including their disputed border with Tibet and other issues.

China's opposition to India's entry into the Nuclear Suppliers Group and its application at the United Nations to declare Pakistan-based terror group chief Masood Azhar as global terrorist are some other irritants in the ties. "The summit will go a long way towards deepening the mutual trust between the two great neighbors", Wang said.

"It will be an important occasion for them (Modi and Xi) to exchange views on bilateral and worldwide matters, from an overarching and long-term perspective with the objective of enhancing mutual communication", Swaraj said.

The Modi-Xi meeting has been worked out by both sides following an understanding between the two governments that positive relations without much of tensions are most important for the development of both the countries. Due to Pakistan's cross-border terror policy vis-à-vis India, it is unlikely that hostilities between the two countries will cease anytime soon on our western border. The prime minister will be in June in China for its SCO summit. My meeting with Foreign Minister Wang Yi today is part of the regular high-level engagements between India and China.

China is locked in an ongoing trade spat with the U.S., which has also threatened India with taxes if New Delhi did not lower import duties.

Calling this a bold step, former foreign Secretary Jaishankar remarked, "They will be meeting in an informal environment".
