Moscow, April 18 (IANS) External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday met Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi to take stock of bilateral relations ahead of the Russia-India-China (RIC) foreign ministers’ meeting here.

“First bilateral of the day in Moscow before RIC Session. EAM @SushmaSwaraj meets her Chinese counterpart Wang Yi,” external affairs ministry spokesman Vikas Swarup tweeted.

The meeting assumes significance given China’s veto against India’s move in the UN to ban Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar.

Sushma Swaraj reached Moscow on Sunday on the second and final leg of her two-nation tour that earlier took her to Iran.

She is also scheduled to meet Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, who is co-chair of the India-Russia inter-governmental commission on trade and economic cooperation, to take stock of the developments in strengthening this important aspect of the bilateral relationship.
