Foreign Ministers of Russian Federation and China call on President Kovind

"We also expect that regional and certain global issues will come up for discussion".

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Minister of Foreign Affairs of China Wang Yi have arrived in New Delhi.

Exactly a month after officials from India, Australia, the United States and Japan sat down for talks on cooperation in the "Indo-Pacific"-seen as a possible security framework among the four against a rising China-Indian foreign minister Sushma Swaraj will meet her counterparts from Russian Federation and China on Monday for discussions on deepening coordination in the Asia-Pacific region".

As long as China and India continue to engage in in-depth strategic communication and promptly dispel strategic misgivings, the strategic value of bilateral cooperation will be presented more clearly to the people, there will be a "prospect of the dragon and the elephant dancing together with 1 + 1 = 11 outlook", Wang said.

Wang Yi's visit is the first high-level visit from China after Indian and Chinese troops were involved a tense face-off position in the Doklam region of the border earlier this year.

Seattle leads the league in penalties with 9.5 per game, and it was an unfortunate way for an otherwise competitive game to end. In an attempt to force a bad snap Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett rolled into the leg of Jaguars center Brandon Linder .

Lavrov and Swaraj were expected to discuss progress in the development of the 7,200-kilometer International North-South Transport Corridor (INSTC) that links India, Iran, Afghanistan, and Central Asia with Europe.

The foreign minister reiterated that "war is by no means acceptable" in dealing with the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue, stressing that the possibility of negotiation remains.

Among other issues seen as priority for India that Swaraj was likely to bring up was China's ambitious Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), a strand of which i.e. the China-Pakistan-Economic Corridor (CPEC), passes through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. This will be the seniormost Chinese official to visit India after the 70-day standoff was defused in late August.

The foreign ministers of Russia, India and China (RIC) are here to deliberate on a range of pressing regional and global issues, including ways to tackle the threat of terrorism and extremism, at the key meeting of the grouping.

China has opposed India's moves to get Jaish-e-Muhammad leader Masood Azhar listed as a terrorist by the UN.
