Beijing, Jan.14 (ANI): President Pratibha Devisingh Patil has been invited to visit China next year.
Announcing this at the Great Hall of the People here, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said that Beijing is looking forward to the Indian President’s visit, even as India will roll out the red carpet for Wu Bangguo, the Chairman of the National People’s Congress later this year.
President Kocheril Raman Narayanan of India visited China in 2000 and Chinese President Hu Jintao visited India in 2006. Such visits between top leaders of the two countries are unprecedented. It shows bilateral ties have indeed been put on a positive track. (ANI)
