BRICS Summit 2017 Highlights: 'Healthy, Stable Ties' Necessary, Xi Jinping Tells PM Narendra Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping held their first bilateral meeting in China's port city of Xiamen.

The meeting comes nearly a week after India and China announced resolution of the 73-day-long Dokalam standoff. New Delhi on Monday scored a significant diplomatic win after BRICS nations, for the first time, named Pakistan-based groups like Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammed and the Haqqani network in a strongly-worded declaration condemning terror. For the first time, the declaration was backed by China, which has resisted a similar move at last year's summit in Goa.
