Modi-Xi's 'no-agenda' meeting: Rahul asks Modi to raise Doklam, CPEC-issues
Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday called Prime Minister Narendra Modi's two-day visit to China as the one having "no agenda", but reminded him to raise the Doklam standoff and the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) with the Chinese leadership, as India wants to hear him talk about these crucial issues. Through microblogging site Twitter, Gandhi mocked Modi, saying, "You look tense," on the visit.

What were Doklam and CPEC issues?
Indian and Chinese troops were locked in a 72-day standoff in Doklam area last year. The CPEC, part of China's ambitious Belt and Road Initiative, runs through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir; India opposes the controversial project. PM Modi and President Xi began talks at an unprecedented two-day informal summit in China's Wuhan. They will have a series of one-on-one conversations on bilateral, global, and regional issues.
