Lockdown to end on schedule, hints PM; list 10 KRAs, union ministers told

Today's meeting of the prime minister with his colleagues in the union ministries raises hope for the economy even amid the apprehension that the nation might not be able to break the chain of the COVID contagion by 14 April

Manila: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today held a brief interaction with Chinese premier Li Keqiang on the sidelines of the East Asia Summit here.

Both Modi and Keqiang had chit-chat on Sunday also during a gala dinner hosted by Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte. 

“Two neighbours in deep conversation. PM @narendramodi with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang on the margins of #EastAsiaSummit Summit in #Manila,” MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted along with a photograph of the two leaders engaging in a conversation while sitting on a sofa.

When asked about the meeting between Modi and Li, Kumar said at a media briefing later that it was in the nature of a lounge meeting and that the two leaders met during a break between two summits.

Kumar said no officials was present as the meeting took place at leaders’ lounge and that is why he was not able to share details of it.

Ties between the two Asian giants have nosedived in the last few months over a series of contentious issues, including the over two month-long standoff between armies of the two countries in Dokalam in the Sikkim sector and China’s strident opposition to the move to declare Pathankot terror attack mastermind Masood Azhar as a global terrorist by the UN.
