New Delhi: Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday initiated his 6-day visit to China. He is scheduled for a discussion in the Public Security University regarding India-China concerns on security training difficulties.

Singh reached China last night and has already met Fan Jingyu, the ruling secretary of Communist Party of China’s University unit, to deliberate about issues concerning training of police officers.

The significance of his trip is that in nearly a decade, he is the first Indian Home Minister to visit China. He is scheduled to meet Guo Shengkun the Public Security Minister of China, today.

The visit is expected to enhance the already improving relations between both the countries. The countries are also rationalising devices to address the displeased border dispute.

Singh tweeted his objective before leaving for the visit, to promote reinforcement of traditional and mutual education for better appreciation between India-China. He also anticipated deepening of mutual understanding and trust between the neighbouring countries.

His trip to China is predicted to develop confidence and strengthen political ties with the country, which was initiated by President Xi Jinping’s visit to India early this month, followed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to China.

He is scheduled to reach Shanghai on Saturday where he would meet the security officials of Communist Party and address a meeting of the Indian Association of Shanghai.

A Chinese-English daily had reported that India has asked China to share their strategy in dealing with jihad activities in Northwest China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.

“In turn, the Indian government, which has gathered considerable intelligence in Pakistan, may also provide terrorism-related intelligence in Xinjiang to China,” said Sun Shihai, vice director of Institute of Asia-Pacific Studies of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, to the daily.

The similarity of threats created among the neighbouring countries is compelling and is helping the countries learn from their experiences and help each other.

Tokyo Olympics 2020 Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar enter semi finals.

Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar (57kg) and Deepak Punia (86kg) enjoyed fruitful outings at the Tokyo Olympic Games as they secured semifinal berths in their respective weight categories at the Makuhari Messe on Wednesday.

On the opening day of the wrestling competition, Ravi Kumar defeated Bulgaria's Georgi Vangelov 14-4 on technical superiority to reach the last-four in the men's 57kg category, while compatriot Deepak Punia overcame China's Zushen Lin 6-3 on points to advance to the semifinals.

Ravi Kumar will take on Nurislam Sanayev of Kazakhstan in the last-four, while Punia will be up against David Morris Taylor of the USA.

Earlier, Ravi Kumar had won his opening-round bout by technical superiority against Colombia's Oscar Tigreros to secure a quarterfinal spot. Competing in the Round-of-16 bout against the Colombian wrestler, the 23-year-old Ravi Kumar, who is making his Olympic debut, showed no nerves as he dominated the bout to win by technical superiority (13-2).

Ravi Kumar landed attack after attack and went 13-2 up, winning the bout by technical superiority with minutes to spare. In wrestling, building up a 10-point lead over the opponent results in a victory by technical superiority.

India's 86kg freestyle wrestler Deepak Punia showed no signs of the niggle that had forced him to pull out of the Poland Open Ranking Series in Warsaw in June, as he defeated Nigeria's Ekerekeme Agiomor on technical superiority to secure a quarterfinal berth.

He got his Olympic campaign to a fine start as he was in control from the start of the bout and hardly ever allowed his Nigerian opponent any room to maneuver his moves, finally winning with a 12-1 on technical superiority.

Punia, who had also suffered an elbow injury just before the Games, was slow at the start but came into his own as the bout progressed, inflicting takedowns at regular intervals to earn points.

The Indian wrestler eased into a 4-1 lead at the break and extended his lead comfortably in the second period.

Punia, the silver medallist from the 2019 world wrestling championships, then set up a clash with China's Lin Zushen in the quarterfinals and defeated him 6-3.
