At the delegation-level talks, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has pitched for making such informal summits a regular feature in bilateral ties and has invited Chinese President Xi Jinping for a visit to India in 2019.

"I hope such informal summits becomes a tradition between both the countries. I'll be happy, if in 2019, we can have such informal summit in India," says Modi.

"We(India-China) have the responsibility to work for 40% of the world population, this means trying to successfully get the world rid of many problems. To work together towards this is a big opportunity for us," he said.

"The people of India feel really proud that I'm maybe the first Prime Minister of India, for whom, you (Chinese President) have come out of the capital twice to receive me," said Prime Minister Narendra Modi during delegation level talks in Wuhan.

Earlier in the day, Modi met Jinping as part of a two-day "heart-to-heart" summit in Wuhan. The Prime Minister will once again meet Jinping for a dinner hosted by the Chinese leader at the East Lake Guest House in central Wuhan.

On Saturday, there will more meetings between Modi and Xi with just interpreters of Hindi and Chinese languages accompanying them. Both leaders will have a walk along the banks of a lake and take a boat ride together to herald a new chapter in Indo-Sino relations.
