Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Wednesday met with his Chinese counterpart premier Li Keqiang. The two PMs began talks to discuss various bilateral and international issues.

Earlier, Singh was received at the Great Hall of the People and accorded a ceremonial Guard of Honour. The two leaders then met for restricted delegation talks followed by another meeting with full delegations from both sides.

After the talks, the two sides were expected to find a series of agreements including the Border Defence Cooperation Agreement (BDCA).

Singh arrived in Beijing Tuesday night on a three-day visit. After his talks with Li, he is also scheduled to meet President Xi Jinping later.

In a rare honour for an Indian leader, President Xi Jinping will also host a dinner for Prime Minister Singh.
