In an effort to infuse freshness in their trilateral ties, the Foreign Ministers of Russia, India and China (RIC) held a meeting on Monday where issues pertaining to the three countries and the global challenges like terrorism, drug trafficking, and climate change were discussed at length.
At her bilateral meeting with Wang, she emphasised that both India and China must enhance mutual trust so that they can develop a better understanding of each other.
Russian Federation threw its weight behind China's massive Belt and Road plan to build trade and transport links across Asia and beyond, suggesting to India on Monday that it find a way to work with Beijing on the signature project.
"We are also seeing cooperation on many global issues", Kovind said according to an official statement.
The world is going through rapid development, major transformation and adjustment, with growing uncertainties, Wang noted.
As major emerging economies, China, Russia and India should strengthen coordination and cooperation, and try to reach strategic consensus on safeguarding regional stability, promoting common development, and pushing forward the democratization of global relations, Wang suggested.
"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".
Using the RIC format to promote cooperation is an important element in efforts created to bring about a multipolar architecture that will be more just and democratic, he added.
Wang further said, "Through diplomatic means, the Indian side withdrew its equipment and personnel which reflected the value and importance of China-India relations and demonstrated sincerity and responsibility of maintaining regional peace and stability".
"Efforts to link the Belt and Road initiative with the EAEU have been producing fruitful results, cooperation between the two countries has been progressing", Wang Yi said.
"Recognising the growing importance of maritime-trade in an increasingly globalised world, we support freedom of navigation and overflight rights based on the principles of global law, particularly UNCLOS (United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea)", said the joint communiqué issued after the meeting.
