Russia, India, China foreign ministers meet concludes in New Delhi

  • Russia pitches for India's participation in China's OBOR

Apart from the trilateral meeting, the three foreign ministers also meet bilaterally informally.

In an address at a think tank, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov also said a sustainable security architecture in the Asia Pacific region can not be achieved through "bloc arrangement", in a clear signal of Moscow's opposition to the quadrilateral grouping comprising the US, Japan, India and Australia.

The references to India by Wang were part of a lengthy speech about China's diplomatic achievements in 2017 and its relations in 2017 with various countries including the US, Russia, Japan and countries in the disputed South China Sea region.

The three nations also expressed deep concern over the threat of weapons of mass destruction falling into the hands of terrorist groups, including the use of chemicals and biological agents for terrorist purposes.

President Kovind congratulated Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi on the successful conclusion of the 19th Congress of the Communist Party of China.

Russia, China and India on Monday condemned terrorism in all forms and reaffirmed their determination to prevent and counter it.

"I put across my view that significant rise in acts of terrorism by organisations like Taliban, Daesh (ISIS), Al-Qaeda, and LeT directly undermine worldwide peace and security and endanger ongoing efforts to strengthen the global economy and ensure sustainable growth and development". And it will be better to meet again and without agenda, which will help us to expand our mutual understanding.

Wang is the first top Chinese official to visit India after the 73-day Doklam stand-off, which ended on August 28 with Chinese troops halting construction activities.

Sushma also held a bilateral meeting with Lavrov where there was a detailed discussion on the situation in Middle East and Afghanistan.

Kumar last week said the three countries would discuss global and regional issues.

On OBOR, Lavrov said Russian Federation feels the concept is very interesting and needed to be explored in the context of building harmonious relationship for deeper regional trade and investment.

The tripartite cooperation should focus on strategic communication and coordination and speak in one voice on major worldwide and regional issues which would help push for a fair and equitable global order, as well as safeguard the legitimate interests of emerging market countries and all the developing countries, he said. "India strongly recommends a comprehensive policy for dealing with global terrorism", Sushma said after the talks. We agree to strengthen cooperation to take decisive and concerted actions against globally proscribed terrorists and terror entities. Indian Government sources said the condemnation of terror and all UN-proscribed outfits in the Communique included the two terror outfits even though they were not mentioned by name.
