Beijing will on Wednesday host a new round of strategic dialogue between economic giants China and India.

The dialogue will be co-chaired by Vice Foreign Minister Zhang Yesui and Indian Foreign Secretary Subramanyam Jaishankar and examine means to boost bilateral relations and issues in the region.

“The dialogue is an important communication mechanism between China and India, and we expect to strengthen political mutual trust, expand strategic common understandings and further promote bilateral ties through this dialogue,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said.

Jaishankar was previously India’s ambassador to China.

China and India routinely hold meetings and consultations to discuss bilateral relations, working within the BRICS structure, and ensuring security and stability in the region.

In November, Sun Jianguo, deputy chief of the Joint Staff Department of China’s Central Military Commission met with Indian Defense Secretary Shri G Mohan Kumar and discussed exchanges on border defense, enhancing communication channels and beefing border management and control “so as to safeguard peace and stability in their border areas.”
