Defence Minister China General Wei Fenghe is arriving in New Delhi today on a four-day visit to India.
Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will have in-depth exchanges with General Wei during the visit.
This will be their second meeting this year as Ms Sitharaman met him during her visit to Beijing in April to take part in the defence ministers’ meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO).
Gen Wei’s visit is regarded as a full-fledged bilateral visit aimed at solidifying military ties in the larger improvement of relations after this year’s informal summit between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Xi Jinping.
The summit at Wuhan had set in motion conscious attempts by both countries to improve ties in all spheres.
