Xi Jinping was staying at the Taj Palace in south Delhi's Dhaula Kuan area. Later in the day Xi Jinping left Delhi after wrapping up a three-day visit to India. Xi, accompanied by his wife Peng Liyuan, had started his visit on Wednesday from Ahmedabad in Gujarat where he was received by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.


He had flown to the national capital the same evening. Before leaving, Xi was called on by Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, Congress President Sonia Gandhi and former prime minister Manmohan Singh.


Earlier on Thursday, Jinping attended the state banquet hosted by President Pranab Mukherjee at Rashtrapati Bhavan as the Chinese leader's India visit nears end. It was also attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, top leadership of the country and the Chinese and Indian delegations.


It is worth mentioning that twelve accord documents were exchanged between India and China after the summit level talks held between Narendra Modi and Xi Jinping here on Thursday. The first agreement was on a new pilgrimage route to Kailash Mansarovar, while two were on trade development. One agreement was on audio-video co-production, and another was on cooperation in railways.


India and China discussed ‘all sensitive issues of concern at length’, including the latest incursion by hundreds of Chinese troops in Ladakh and vowed to resolve the border issues by earliest.
