Chinese Premier Li Qiang is expected to represent Beijing at the meeting in New Delhi.
Biden in his interaction also said that India and Vietnam have much closer relations with the United States, which are very helpful.
Chinese President Xi is likely to skip the event. There is no official announcement yet from China regarding his absence. The row was raised after China released the map of their country claiming Arunachal Pradesh in their region. Xi Jinping and Narendra Modi met recently in South Africa, yet Xi’s move after returning to his country has raised controversy. The Indian government has yet to respond on the issue which might be resolved smoothly with official letters or requests.
