Agency Beijing: India and China on Monday agreed on a host of initiatives to improve their relations, with New Delhi emphasising that the future of the ties will depend on the mutual sensitivity to each other’s “core concerns” to ensure that any bilateral differences should not become disputes. Making his first visit to China after taking over office, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar held candid talks with top Chinese leaders. His visit three-day visit to China comes amid spiralling tensions between India and Pakistan over the revocation of special status to Jammu and Kashmir. Before he settled for a structured talk with his counterpart Wang Yi, Jaishankar met the tough-talking Chinese Vice President Wang Qishan, a close confidant of President Xi Jinping, at the picturesque residential complex Zhongnanhai, where China’s top leaders reside. He held a frank discussion with Wang Qishan about the state of the bilateral ties in the context of China’s concerns over the bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories — Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
