BEIJING - President Xi Jinping met in Beijing on Tuesday with Ajit Doval, special envoy and national security adviser to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Doval conveyed a message from Modi to Xi, in which the Indian prime minister said he believes Xi's upcoming state visit to India will deepen the two countries' understanding, friendship and trust, and inject new vitality to bilateral cooperation.

"The visit will be another important milestone in the development of India-China relations," Modi was quoted as saying.

Invited by Indian President Pranab Mukherjee, Xi will pay a state visit to India next week.

Doval told Xi that the Indian government and people will warmly welcome him, vowing joint efforts with China to ensure the visit's success.

Xi said Doval's visit showed the importance that Modi and the Indian government attached to his trip, and sent a positive signal to the world.

Xi said enhancing China-India relations meets the common aspirations of the two peoples.

Xi recalled his first meeting with Modi this July in Brazil at the sixth BRICS summit, saying they reached broad agreement and both believed China-India ties are of strategic importance.

Our cooperation not only helps each other's development but also benefits Asia and the world at large, Xi said.
