India, China leaders’ meeting to ease tensions over border

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is meeting this week with Chinese President Xi Jinping, a visit that could reset a complicated relationship that faced several tests last year, including a border standoff, AP reports. The meeting between the leaders of the world’s two most populous nations will take place in the central Chinese city of Wuhan on Friday and Saturday. “Our common interests far outweigh our divergences,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said. The two countries fought a monthlong border war in 1962 and have been trying to settle the boundary since the 1980s, with each side accusing the other of occupying its territory.
