China Premier Li Keqiang arrives in India for first foreign trip

  • China's Premier Li Keqiang arrived in India on Sunday for his first foreign trip since taking office.

    Premier Li held talks with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in the Indian capital, New Delhi, where the two leaders discussed border tensions and trade relations.

    The meeting comes a month after a longstanding border dispute resurfaced, resulting in India accusing Chinese troops of crossing the countries' border in the Himalayas.

    Increasing trade is also expected to feature high on the agenda of Li’s three-day trip to India.

    The two countries have agreed to a new $100 billlion bilateral trade target for 2015.

    Following his trip to India, Premier Li will travel to Pakistan, Switzerland and Germany.
