Modi Raises Concerns Over CPEC With Chinese President Xi Jinping
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi raised his reservations over CPEC during his meeting with the Chinese President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of G20 leaders summit here on Sunday, Indian media reported.
The meeting was held at the Hangzhou West Lake State Guest House. The meeting between the two leaders comes in the backdrop of contentious issues including China stalling India’s membership at the elite Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) and USD 46 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
The two leaders had last met at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) Summit in June in Tashkent and are again set to meet in Goa next month on the sidelines of BRICS summit.
China too has been concerned over the close ties of India with the US and the recently signed Logistics Exchange Memorandum of Agreement (LEMOA) which will give the militaries of both countries access to each other’s facilities for supplies and repairs, the Indian media said.
