Chinese President Xi Jinping told Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi Tuesday that healthy and stable relations between China and India were in the interests of the people.

Mr Modi congratulated Mr Xi on a "very successful" execution of the three-day Brics summit, in a show of conciliatory support between the two leaders.

Modi also said India would work with fellow BRICS allies to curb black money and corruption, a stated goal of Xi Jinping. However, on verification, both sides are now at the pre-June 16 position, which effectively means that China has stopped its road construction activities in Doklam region's Dolam plateau for now.

Pressed on how the Doklam dispute was discussed, Jaishankar said, "Both of us know what happened". "PM Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping to hold (a) two-sided meeting at 12:30 pm (10 am IST) tomorrow in Xiamen", MEA authorities told PTI.

They felt that peace and tranquility in the border areas is a per-requisite for ties to move forward, Jaishankar said. China has repeatedly blocked India's attempts to have the leader of Jaish-e-Mohammad put on a U.N. Security Council terror blacklist.

"This is a particularly promising value proposition for emerging destinations such as BRICS: the nations of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa", stated Airbnb.

Port Arthur refinery, largest in U.S. , shuts down as Harvey floods Texas
The flooding, particularly in the Houston area, cut gasoline demand by about 150,000 barrels per day, according to some estimates. Others saw potential for operational refineries to delay typical September seasonal maintenance to benefit from high prices.

The Prime Minister added that, "Our "no strings attached" model of cooperation is driven purely by the requirements and priorities of our partner countries". PM Modi is also expected to raise the issue of terrorism and its effect on the BRICS nations.

The Ministry of External Affairs released a statement saying the two countries have been engaged in intense discussions and an "expeditious disengagement of border personnel has been agreed to and is on-going".

As nations with major influence, BRICS countries must step up communication and coordination on important issues and work for more just and equitable order, he said.

"We hope India can view China's development in a correct and rational way". He also noted the strong development momentum in the comprehensive strategic partnership between the two sides in recent years.

Xiamen (China): In a big win for India's campaign against terrorism emanating from Pakistan, BRICS countries on Monday named Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammad in their joint declaration while calling for a comprehensive approach to combat terrorism.
