After almost two-and-a-half hours of "open and cordial" one-on-one free-wheeling talks on Friday ( October 11), Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese president Xi Jinping will again meet today (October 12) in Mamalllapuram to continue their talks.

They are scheduled to meet at the Tanjo Hall at the resort for the second round of their informal talks, taking forward the Wuhan spirit forged during the first such meeting between the two in the Chinese city in April past year.

Receiving Xi at the entrance, Modi also extended warm welcome to the Chinese president.

A video from Saturday morning shows Narendra Modi walking along a beach in Mamallapuram, Tamil Nadu, formerly known as Mahabalipuram, picking up garbage strewn on the beach and collecting it in a plastic bag.

The World Heritage site of Mahabalipuram is home to historical monuments that pay testament to India and China´s ancient ties.

That meeting went beyond schedule, with the leaders talking for two and a half hours.

"We had decided that we will manage our differences prudently and won't allow them to turn into disputes", Modi told Xi, to which he replied: "Yesterday Prime Minister as you said, you and I had engaged in candid conversations like friends, heart to heart discussions on bilateral relations".

However, the following year Xi and Modi patched things up in China's Wuhan. After their development for several thousand years, India and China have both become important emerging economies, Modi said, stressing that enhancing exchanges and cooperation bears great significance to the two countries and will promote global progress and prosperity.

Xi and Modi held several hours of one-on-one talks in a southern seaside Indian town in their second annual summit created to break through decades of distrust between their countries over border disputes, a ballooning trade deficit and China's close military ties with India's arch rival, Pakistan.
