CHENNAI, India, Oct. 12 (Xinhua) -- The just-concluded informal meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has achieved fruitful outcomes, a senior Chinese diplomat said here on Saturday.

During the second informal meeting in the southern Indian city of Chennai, Xi and Modi have exchanged in-depth views on overarching, long-term and strategic global and regional issues, and agreed to enhance the two countries' ever-closer partnership for development, Vice Foreign Minister Luo Zhaohui told reporters after the two-day meeting.

The two leaders agreed that both China and India are committed to forging a peaceful, safe and prosperous world, and all countries have the right to seek development in a world order based on international law, Luo said.

He said that Xi and Modi reaffirmed the consensuses reached during their first informal meeting in Wuhan, a central Chinese city, in April last year.

Xi left Chennai on Saturday afternoon. He is on a two-day state visit to Nepal, the first by a Chinese president in 23 years.
