WUHAN, China (Reuters) - Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Kong Xuanyou said on Saturday the just-concluded informal summit between the leaders of China and India was a milestone in relations.

China and India have concrete differences but the summit was not aimed at addressing these specific issues, Kong told reporters in the central Chinese city of Wuhan where the meeting took place.

Chinese President Xi Jinping said the problems between China and India are of a limited, temporary nature, Kong said.
