India and China have held extensive discussions on terrorism and connectivity in Asia during exchange of views and perspectives on foreign policy priorities of their respective countries here, External Affairs Ministry said Sunday.

"A Chinese delegation led by Wang Yajun, Director General in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, travelled to Delhi for the dialogue. The talks were led on the Indian side by Santosh Jha, Joint Secretary (Policy Planning & Research).

"The two sides had a productive exchange of views and perspectives on the foreign policy priorities of their respective countries, their relations with the major powers of the world, issues of global governance, terrorism, connectivity in Asia, etc," the ministry said in a release.

The dialogue helped enhance the understanding between both foreign ministries on these important issues, it said.

The interaction, which was held last week, is part of the long-standing mechanism between the two countries to understand broad policy decisions and outlook, sources said.
