China's foreign minister was in India on Friday, officials said, his first visit since a deadly clash on the Asian giants' disputed Himalayan border in 2020.


The high-altitude brawl in June 2020 left 20 Indian soldiers and at least four Chinese troops dead, and led to a sharp deterioration in relations with both sides sending major reinforcements to the area, AFP said.


Wang Yi, who arrived from Afghanistan in his first visit since the Taliban took power, was due to meet Indian counterpart S. Jaishankar later on Friday in New Delhi.
