  • Indian foreign minister Sushma Swaraj will host in the 15th RIC foreign ministerial meeting in New Delhi on 11 December 2017

The strong reaction from China also comes days ahead of Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi's visit to India for the Russia, India and China (RIC) Foreign Ministers meeting.

Wang will take part in the RIC Foreign Ministers' meeting on December 11, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told media briefing here today.

According to Zakharova, the Russian and Chinese foreign ministers will also have a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the event. During the meeting, the parties are expected to exchange views in detail on the current situation in the region and around the globe, including on developments in Afghanistan, the Middle East and on the Korean Peninsula.

Media reports previously said the RIC meeting was planned for April this year but Wang did not confirm dates in the backdrop of China's protests over the Dalai Lama visiting Arunachal Pradesh in the same month.

On South China Sea, India is expected to renew its call for respecting all provisions of UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) and ensuring freedom of navigation in the resource-rich waters.

Wang's visit to Delhi is regarded significant as it would set tone for President Xi Jinping's policy approach to India in his second term as the head of the ruling Communist Party of China.

The armies of India and China were engaged in a 73-day-long standoff in Dokalm after Indian troops stopped Chinese soldiers from building a key road in the area.

NJ's weekend snow forecast just got worse; up to 4 inches possible
Small local variations in temperatures will mean you see little accumulation and more significant amounts within a short distance. Most of those stay in the mid 30s through Friday morning, which will limit how much snow can stick when it falls.


Though India may raise the contentious issues, it will highlight the need for joining hands by the three countries to pursue common strategic interests in the region, it is learnt.

It has also been reported earlier that PLA was slowly starting to increase the number of troops at the border and Beijing has once again started working on its roads and upgrading and widening the existing routes.

"India just wants to incite the U.S. to cooperate with India on containing China", said Hu.

Shuili added: "We will fulfill our mission and responsibility and defend China's national sovereignty and security resolutely". It is believed that the Indian Army was reconnoitering the Doklam Plateau - a recent standoff zone, when the gadget moved beyond the range of its remote control, causing it to crash in the Chumbi Valley.

Chinese officials in off the record conversations said differences over Azhar's issue may be resolved.

It may also allay apprehension about joining the proposed quadrilateral coalition with Japan, Australia and the United States, which was seen as a move to counter China.

"Such tactics do not reflect well on China s global image". Both sides announced disengagement on August 28.
