New Delhi, Jan 28: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who made the headlines in the Chinese media over his invitation to US President Barack Obama in New Delhi, is likely to visit the neighbouring country in the coming months. [What Obama shared with India over 3 days]
Reports said the details of the prime minister's visit will be worked out during the four-day visit of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to Beijing starting January 31.
PM Modi is also eager to undertake a visit to Kailash Mansarovar in Tibet during the visit, the reports said.
Chinese President Xi Jinping had visited Ahmedabad with the First Lady last September in what made a high-profile visit.
On Wednesday, China said Swaraj's visit close on the heels of Obama's visit to India would deepen the neighbours' mutual trust.
Close observers said India would show to China through the external affairs minister's visit that it would not play a part to any attempt by Washington to contain China.
Swaraj, who will embark on the maiden visit to China after taking over the office in May last year, will launch the "Visit India" tourism campaign and a China-India media forum.
She is also scheduled to participate in the Russia-India-China foreign ministers' trilateral meeting.
