Indian Foreign Minister to Visit China to Reduce Tensions

India’s foreign minister Salman Khurshid will travel to China next month on a trip aimed at easing tensions between the world’s two most-populous countries amid a continuing dispute along their border.

Khurshid will visit Beijing for talks with Chinese officials on May 9, he told reporters in New Delhi today. India’s government has accused the Chinese army of straying into its territory in Depsang valley in Ladakh, a claim denied by China. Two meetings between the nations’ armies have failed to resolve the matter.
