Beijng, Feb 20: The foreign ministers of Russia, India and China will meet in Wuzhen in China's Zhejiang Province on February 27 and exchange views on major regional and international issues.

Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi will chair the meeting.

This would be the 16th meeting of the foreign ministers of the three countries.

"During this foreign ministers' meeting, the three foreign ministers will focus on implementation of our leaders' consensus, and exchange views on major international, regional issues of common concern and deepening trilateral cooperation," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said on Wednesday.

"I am sure this meeting will achieve positive outcomes," he added.

For India, the meeting has added significance as it will be the first ministerial interaction with China after the Pulwama terror attack.

On Tuesday, China had hoped that India and Pakistan will exercise restraint and carry out dialogues to defuse tension over the attack. (UNI)
