Singh met Wang on the sidelines of the BRICS foreign ministers' meeting being held in Beijing to finalise the agenda for this year's BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) Summit to be held in September in China's Xiamen city.

In his opening remarks, Singh said India would like to strengthen strategic cooperative relationship with China.

The BRICS foreign ministers' meeting is a precursor to the chain of meetings of BRICS officials including the National Security Advisors (NSAs) meeting to be held later next month ahead of the summit.

Incidentally, this is the first time the foreign ministers meeting has been called by a host country holding the BRICS Summit.

China took over the rotating presidency of the BRICS from India after 2016's Goa Summit.
