As China is maintaining close relations with Pakistan, this meeting gained a lot of importance.
He also said that the summit will not focus on the trade-related issues between the countries for sure. There are drawbacks to the free trade between the countries and Modi and Jingping are not interested to talk about this. He reminded that along with India 16 other countries signed the free trade agreement with China. With these drawbacks, India has faced loss economically.
He said that by importing Agriculture and Pharmaceutical products to China we can recover from the loss. It's an open secret that the diplomatic relations between the two powerful Asian countries India and China are not in a good way and measures have to be taken to improve the situations. It's quite disturbing to know China is trying to have cordial relations with Pakistan, added Dhruv.
