With Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to China for the BRICS Summit, media reports hint that there could be a bilateral meeting between PM Modi and China's Premier Xi Jinping. This resulted in a months-long standoff between the troops of both the nations along India's Sikkim border, where both sides told each other to withdraw from the region.

"BRICS cooperation meets the common requirements of our five nations for development and conforms to the historical trends", Xi said, underscoring the common pursuit of partnership and prosperous development despite different national conditions.

"The BRICS Summit has been successful in addressing the challenges of the rapidly changing global scenario", Prime Minister Modi added.

The Chinese and Indian troops had an eyeball-to-eyeball standoff since June 16 after the Indian side stopped the construction of a road by the Chinese Army on the plateau, which is claimed by Bhutan.

Jaishankar said: "Both of us (India and China) know what happened".

In a meeting that lasted over an hour, Mr Xi called for putting its bilateral relationship with India on the "right track", reported Xinhua, China's official news agency.
