Modi and Xi on Tuesday met for more than an hour on the sidelines of the BRICS nations summit in the Chinese city of Xiamen, a week after agreeing to end a more than two-month long stand-off along their disputed border.

“One of the important points made during the meeting was that peace and tranquility in the border areas was a prerequisite for the further development of our relationship,” S. Jaishankar told reporters.
