New Delhi: BJP president Amit Shah on Sunday met a top official of the Chinese Communist Party and exchanged views with him for enhancing the dialogue between the two parties.
"Shah met Wang Jiarui, Minister of the International Department of the Communist Party of China's Central Committee today at the BJP headquarters here," the party said in a release.
During the meeting, Shah hailed Jiarui for being the first official visitor as part of the 'Visit India' year being observed by Beijing.
Jiarui extended an invitation to Shah to visit China while the duo also discussed ways of encouraging people-to-people interaction between the two countries.
