FORTALEZA: In a significant development, China on Tuesday invited India to attend a summit of Asia and Pacific (APEC) leaders as Prime Minister Narendra Modi met President Xi Jin Ping and discussed various issues including the need to resolve the boundary question in an amicable manner.
The two leaders, who arrived almost at the same time here last evening for attending the BRICS summit, engaged shortly thereafter for what was described as "good discussions and good meeting".
The meeting was scheduled for 40 minutes but it went on for 80 as it was freewheeling discussion without any constraints.
The two leaders appeared well prepared for the meeting as both of them referred to the statements made by the other before they assumed power, Akbaruddin said.
He quoted Xi as saying that "when India and China meet the world watches us".
President Xi in particular referred to Modi's experience in Gujarat as chief minister and his focus on development.
