New Delhi, July 7 (IBNS): Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Friday questioned the 'silence' of Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the 'China issue'.

"Why is our Prime Minister silent on China?," Office of RG tweeted.

Meanwhile, Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping came face to face during an informal meeting of the  BRICS nations.

The meeting was held in the sidelines of the two-day G20 summit being held in Hamburg city in Germany.

The Indian government said Modi and Xi discussed on different issues during the meeting.

"At d BRICS leaders' informal gathering @ Hamburg hosted by China, PM @narendramodi and President Xi had a conversation on a range of issues," MEA spokesperson Gopal Baglay tweeted along with a picture of both the leaders meeting.

During the informal meet of BRICS leaders, Modi reportedly appreciated momentum in BRICS under the Chairmanship of President Xi and extended full cooperation and best wishes for the upcoming BRICS Xiamen Summit.
