A meeting between External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in Beijing is going to be the last major engagement between New Delhi and the communist country before the parliamentary elections in India.
Swaraj will visit Beijing next month to take part in a meeting of the RIC (Russia-India-China) foreign ministers. She will hold a bilateral meeting with Wang on the sideline of the RIC meet, sources in New Delhi said.
Swaraj-Wang meet in Beijing is likely to be the last high-level engagement between the two neighbouring nations before the Lok Sabha polls in India. New Delhi and Beijing had a series of engagements in 2018 to mend the ties, which had hit a new low over the military face-off at Doklam Plateau in western Bhutan in June-August 2017.
External Affairs Minister will also hold a bilateral meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on the sideline of the multilateral meet.
