New Delhi: While India is reeling under the rejection of nuclear membership by China inside the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG), Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi met Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Saturday to discuss regional and bilateral issues of both the countries.

Not only the NSG, Foreign Minister Wang Yi will probably be discussing the sensitive border apprehensions India holds and the issue of Chinese incursion in the border of Uttarakhand. But the most contentious issue of all is China's rejection of India as an NSG country despite India garnering support of prominent countries across the globe.

Earlier, Wang Yi visited Goa where the 8th BRICS Summit will be held in October, a meeting which will see the visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping.

After the NSG fiasco and the purported intrusion by Chinese troops in Chamoli, the two countries will be looking to alleviate its strained relationship.
