China’s President Xi Jinping will travel to India for the third time this month, a senior White House official told CNN.
The trip comes as the country’s air quality is being questioned, with officials questioning whether China’s efforts to reduce emissions are working, according to officials.
The Chinese president’s trip comes after the US-China Business Council visited India on March 8, and a group of CEOs met with the Chinese government on March 11.
The administration is working with India’s health ministry and the Ministry of Civil Aviation to provide updates on the air quality situation, according the White House.
The visit comes as President Xi Xi Jinping has visited India twice this year, most recently on February 28 and March 1, according CNN.
Xi Jinping will visit India on April 16, an official said.
Xi Jinping’s first visit to India came on February 25.
The Chinese government has been working to cut emissions and improve air quality since Xi took office in 2012, according a White House statement.
In addition to Xi Jinping, the US has also traveled to India and Bangladesh on several occasions.
On February 16, the President’s Advisory Group visited the Indian capital, New Delhi, to discuss how to address air pollution and other air-related issues.
