Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman arrived in China on Monday to attend a preparatory meeting related to upcoming summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO).

All these new trends in the world have been closely followed and debated, Lu said in apparent reference to a host of measures initiated by US President Donald Trump in his "America First" policy leading to a lot of protectionist measures including the current trade spate between the China and US.

Khawaja Asif also apprised Wang Yi about the situation prevailing in Occupied Kashmir. The two leaders will be holding a meeting in China's Wuhan city. The two sides maintain close and comprehensive contacts and coordinate with each other on major worldwide and regional issues.

Wang said the bilateral ties have witnessed good development and shown a positive momentum this year under the guidance of the leaders of the two nations. "We will work closely with the Chinese leadership to take India-China cooperation to new heights", she said.

Wang was elevated as state councillor last month which makes him the top diplomat of the country in the Chinese hierarchy.

The two sides also exchanged views on global and regional issues of common interest.

"If there is an interpreter sitting between two friends, he may be able to translate the words but not the feelings with which I say something".

Pakistan firmly supports China's core interests and wishes that China will play a greater role in worldwide and regional affairs, he added.

According to a Foreign Office statement, the Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM) will discuss issues related to peace and security at the worldwide and regional level and promotion of cooperation between member states.

Last year turned out to be an extremely complex and hard year for Sino-Indian ties with a host of festering differences like China blocking India's entry into the elite Nuclear Suppliers Group as well as attempts to list Jaish-e-Mahammed leader Masood Azhar as a terrorist by the United Nations.
