Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping will meet face-to-face in November for the first time after a tense situation in May in Ladakh.
According to the English newspaper Indian Express, the two leaders will join the BRICS conference on 17 November through video conferencing.
Russia announced on Monday that the 12th BRICS conference of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa will take place this time through virtual channels.
Modi and Xi, who have met at least 18 times in the last six years, have not spoken to each other since the border dispute.
No meeting or phone call is scheduled between the two before 17 November, however, the newspaper has quoted sources as saying that the possibility of a conversation cannot be dismissed.
Earlier, the two leaders were seen on a platform on 26 March when Saudi Arabia held a virtual meeting of G-20 countries regarding the Kovid-19 epidemic.
Modi and Xi will have another chance to share the G20 platform again. Actually, every year after the BRICS conference, there is a four-day G20 conference. This time this conference is to be held on November 21-22.
Sources say that the BRICS conference could be an opportunity to resolve the dispute. While both sides will try to resolve the issue before November 17.
