Modi, Xi to come face-to-face for first time since border clashes

PM Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping will come face-to-face on Friday for the first time since deadly border clashes in 2020 frayed ties between the Asian rivals. The event comes after Indian and Chinese soldiers this week disengaged from the Hot Springs region in eastern Ladakh after more than two years of a standoff. The leaders have not spoken to each other since the standoff began.
