India's Modi to get museum tour, dinner with Xi as China trip begins
WUHAN, China (April 27): Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will get a tour of a museum and dinner with President Xi Jinping on Friday, the first day of an ice-breaking visit to China in which the giant neighbours will seek to re-set a troubled relationship.
Modi is only spending about 24 hours in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, just months after a dispute over a stretch of their high-altitude Himalayan border rekindled fears of war between the two Asian nations.
