CHENNAI, India - The just-concluded informal meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has achieved fruitful outcomes, a senior Chinese diplomat said on Saturday.

During the second informal meeting in the southern Indian city of Chennai, Xi and Modi exchanged in-depth views on overarching, long-term and strategic issues of global and regional importance, and agreed to enhance the closer development partnership of the two countries, Chinese Vice-Foreign Minister Luo Zhaohui told reporters after the two-day meeting.

The two leaders reaffirmed the consensus reached during their first informal meeting in China's central city of Wuhan last year that China and India offer each other chances for development, Luo said.

Xi and Modi spoke highly of the development of bilateral ties, agreed to enhance communication in experience of state governance and strengthen synergy of development strategies, and discussed how to deepen bilateral exchanges so as to demonstrate the increasingly important roles of both countries on the world stage, Luo said.

The two leaders agreed that both China and India are committed to building a peaceful, secure and prosperous world, in which all countries can seek development in a world order based on international law, according to Luo.

Xi and Modi agreed that a rules-based multilateral trading system should be supported and strengthened, and the two countries will continue to work for open and inclusive trade arrangements that will bring benefits to all countries, Luo said.
