In her separate meetings with Xi and Li on Wednesday, the entire gamut of bilateral relations alongside the regional and international matters came up for discussion.

PM Hasina’s visit to China is taking place within 15 days after her India visit on June 21 and 22. She had last met with President Xi recently on the sidelines of the 15th BRICS Summit in Johannesburg, South Africa.
