Ahead of his three-day visit to China next week, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi has resorted to twitter diplomacy, saying his visit will lay the foundation for developing not only bilateral relations between the two countries, but will also bolster stability in Asia.
“Looking forward to visiting China from 14-16 May to boost friendship between our 2 ancient civilizations and 2 largest developing nations,” wrote the net-savvy prime minister in his twitter post.
“I am confident my visit will lay the foundation for further enhancing economic co-operation with China in a wide range of sectors,” he stressed.
The prime minister recently signed on to Sina Weibo, the Chinese version of microblogging site twitter, which has more than 150 million active users, and shared his massage in the Mandarin to convey his massage to the people of world’s most populous country.
Sharing his travel itinerary, Mr Modi said he was looking forward to visiting Beijing, Shanghai and Xi’an in the Shaanxi Province in central China.
“Honoured that Mr. Xi Jinping invited me to Xi’an in his home province and a land associated with Xuan Zang, who visited India,” he tweeted.
Placing his maiden visit to China in a broader perspective, Mr Modi underlined that his trip will aid his Make in India mission and will also help build peace and stability in the Asian hemisphere.
“Am certain that my visit to China will strengthen stability, progress and prosperity in Asia,” he added.
Mr Modi’s trip to China promises to be a landmark trip that will buttress his economic agenda in seeking Chinese investment and expertise to build India’s manufacturing and infrastructure.
