BEIJING - Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will pay an official visit to China from Saturday to Tuesday, as a guest of Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, China's Foreign Ministry announced on Wednesday.

Swaraj, on her first visit to China since taking office, will meet with Chinese leaders and hold talks with Wang, said spokesperson Hua Chunying.

Swaraj will also attend the launch ceremony of the Indian Tourism Year as well as the opening ceremony of a China-India media summit, Hua said.
