BEIJING: Sino-Indian military exchanges grew rapidly after this year’s informal summit between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Xi Jinping at Wuhan, Indian envoy to China Gautam Bambawale said on Tuesday.
“This is a good development as we cannot solve the issues between us if we are not direct and frank with each other. Strategic communication is important not merely between the top leadership of our countries but also between our diplomats, our military officers and our trade negotiators,” Bambawale said.
“After Wuhan, our military exchanges have not merely resumed but grown rapidly. Our military commanders are now talking to each other more frankly and more candidly than ever before,” he said, while speaking at the fifth dialogue between the Indian Council of World Affairs and the Chinese People’s Institute for Foreign Affairs.
