As everyone knows, Tamilnadu today celebrates "China Day" as honourary President of Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived here to attend the second informal Summit. The destination for the Summit is preferred as Mahabalipuram, South India due to the connectivity China holds with South India. The reason behind this acquaintance is very well known through the "Yezham Arivu" movie in which one of the Pallava kings Bodhi Dharma went to China to save the people from an unfortunate disease.
The first informal Summit has already happened in China but not in Beijing. This has happened to settle down the Sino-Bhutan border dispute. Doklam is a place which is technically coming under Bhutan, but China was laying roads in Doklam exercising rights over the region. India has taken moral responsibility during independence that Bhutan will be backed for any reasons always by India. To keep up the same, it went against China in the Doklam issue.
After the first Summit, China stepped back from Bhutan. The second Summit is to discuss about Hongkong and Kashmir dispute technically. China is already in Pakistan ground to support in Kashmir issues. But China cannot go against India totally. There is a trade war that happens in the US against China the two big economies. India being third is getting good support from the US. If China goes entirely against, there are chances China would be displaced down the chart. So the US and China tries to maintain a balanced relationship with us.
The two leaders also speak about export imports. India is already importing many things from China. Now to support the Indian economy, China has started importing sugar and rice from India. All these are to maintain the cordial relationship amongst the countries.
