BEIJING - Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh arrived in Beijing on Tuesday night for a three-day official visit.

Chinese President Xi Jinping will meet with the Indian prime minister, and Premier Li Keqiang will hold talks with him during his visit. Top legislator Zhang Dejiang will also meet with Singh.

Singh will deliver a speech at the Party School of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China.

This is another important high-level visit between China and India after Li's visit to India in May, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said last week.

It is the first time since 1954 that the Chinese Premier and Indian Prime Minister visit each other in the same year, which is of great importance to deepening the strategic cooperative partnership between the two countries, Hua said.
