Ways to enhance the bilateral trade volume, as well as trade value, were also discussed. On terrorism, both leaders acknowledged that radicalisation is a real problem for countries as diverse, complex and large as India and China. They agreed that radicalisation should not be allowed to affect the multicultural thread prevailing in both countries.
