The foreign ministers of Russian Federation and China will visit India on December 11 for the much-delayed trilateral meeting, which is expected to review global and regional issues of mutual interest.

"According to our information, Wang will meet with the top officials of India and detailed information will be released in due course", Geng said.

There was a military stand-off between India and China at Doklam on the tri-junction of the Indian, Chinese and Bhutanese borders, which ended after 71 days in August. During the RIC meeting, the three foreign ministers will exchange views on major global and regional issues of common concern and deepen trilateral pragmatic cooperation, he said.

He will be here to attend the meeting of RIC Foreign Ministers. India had intervened on Bhutan's behalf as Chinese building activities threatened "Chicken's Neck"- a narrow strip of land connecting Indian mainland to its northeastern states. India objected to the construction highlighting its security concerns.

Wang would be gracing an India-China cultural evening being organised at Pravasi Bhartiya Kendra. The road was being built by the Chinese troops in the area also claimed by Bhutan. The two sides agreed to an "expeditious disengagement" of troops there about a week before Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met in an effort to mend ties at a summit hosted by China in September.

There were media reports then that Wang had put off his visit to India to protest New Delhi's decision to allow the Dalai Lama to travel to Arunachal Pradesh.
