Narendra Modi arrives in China

The relevant gathering that brings together the leaders and business chief executives of Brasil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS) is scheduled for Sunday and Monday in the southeastern coastal city of Xiamen.

Their meeting will be keenly watched after the resolution of the Doklam border row, which pitted the armies of the two countries against each other for over two months.

Modi arrived at the Wyndham Grand hotel where some 50 locals were present to welcome him. In its backdrop, the bilateral meeting between the leaders of the two nations is expected to draw more attention than the economic agenda. The last one took place during the Shanghai Cooperation Organization Summit.

Besides, Modi is expected to meet Presidents Vladimir Putin of Russian Federation and Michael Temer of Brazil.

"I am convinced that as long as we take a holistic approach to fighting terrorism in all its forms, and address both its symptoms and root causes, terrorists will have no place to hide,"Xi said while delivering a keynote speech at the opening ceremony of the BRICS Business Forum scheduled for September 3-4 in the south-eastern coastal city of Xiamen".

Modi and Xi are expected to meet on Tuesday, almost a week after the two countries announced resolution of the 73- day-long Dokalam standoff.
