However, Gokhale did not reveal if irritants in Sino-India relations like China's Belt and Road initiative and its opposition to New Delhi's entry into the Nuclear Suppliers Group came up in the the six rounds of talks between Modi and Xi in two days. While the two leaders recognised the common threat posed by terrorism, specific issues like China's opposition to Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar being labeled a terrorist by the United Nations - and to India's membership of the Nuclear Suppliers Group - were not brought up.

Modi mentioned the importance of balancing the trade, and the scope of the possibilities of agricultural and pharmaceutical exports to China.
