New Delhi, Mar 27 (ANI): Chinese Vice Premier Minister Hui Liangyu, who is on a visit to New Delhi, met Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh on Saturday.

Liangyu, one of four Vice-Premiers in the Chinese government, is accompanied by a high-level delegation comprising senior Chinese officials.

Both leaders reportedly discussed a range of issues related to bilateral relations especially agriculture, environment management and climate change.

Liangyu, who is also the highest-ranked official in charge of agriculture, is also scheduled to visit the Central Institute of Cotton Research (CICR) at Nagpur.

India and China have made little progress in resolving their decades-old dispute over the Himalayan border, despite several rounds of talks.

The neighbours, who compete for global resources and influence, have also exchanged diplomatic barbs at multilateral forums and sparred over visa policies for their citizens in an escalating row that many fear could spiral out of control. (ANI)
