Chennai, Oct. 12:
In his delegation level talks with Xi at a luxury resort overlooking the Bay of Bengal in Kovalam on the second and final day of the informal summit, Modi noted that Tamil Nadu and China were global economic powers during most of the last 2000 years and were returning to stage gradually.
After around five-and-half hours of one-on-one talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping in multiple sessions spread over two days, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said a new era of cooperation will begin on Saturday in Sino-India ties through the “Chennai connect”.
“The Wuhan spirit had given a new momentum and trust to our ties. A new era of cooperation will begin today through ‘Chennai Connect’,” Modi said while referring to the outcome of the first informal summit between the two leaders in the Chinese port last year.
The prime minister said strategic communication between the two countries increased following the first informal summit in Wuhan.
