President Pranab Mukherjee on Thursday held delegation – level talks with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping in a bid to bolster bilateral ties between both nations.

Apart from bilateral, regional and international issues, borders problems and China’s role in blocking India’s bid in the United Nations body to ban JeM chief Masood Azhar are likely to be discussed between the two leaders.

President Mukherjee had earlier said that New Delhi and Beijing should comprehensively resolve all challenges, including the boundary question.

In his address to the Peking University earlier today, he noted that there is bipartisan commitment to strengthening partnership with Beijing and said political understanding between both nations is vital for closer developmental partnership.

Asserting on building a people-centric partnership, he said that the two countries must have mutual trust predicated on mutual respect and a better appreciation of their respective political and social systems.

He was earlier today accorded with a Guard of Honour at the ‘Great Hall of the People’.
