During the visit, Indian President Pranab Mukherjee will discuss a range of key and contentious issues with China's leaders.
Furthermore, the Indian President will also pursue a reasonable and mutually acceptable settlement of the boundary question with China's leaders. The India – China boundary issue has soured relations between the two neighboring countries for decades.
