Pakistan, China have more potential to strengthen bilateral cooperation: President Xi
On Sunday, Pakistan announced agreements with China on possible projects worth a total of 500 million yuan ($72 million). No major Western leaders attended, though Britain, France and Germany were represented by top finance officials.

Polls will be held in four municipalities in the northern Bengal hills - Darjeeling, Kurseong and Mirik Notified Area Authority in Darjeeling district and Kalimpong in the newly formed Kalimpong district. In an attempt to break the GJM hegemony, the TMC has tied up with the Gorkha National Liberation Front. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress (TMC) will look to consolidate its position as the numero uno party in the state. GJM has accused the ruling party of the state of poaching its leaders and spreading lies and canards against it, the agency reports. "The fact is GJM has been running a dictatorship in the Hills, and the people have started revolting against it", TMC Minister Aroop Biswas said. BJP was trying to gain out of the recent tussle between TMC government and the RSS-BJP combine over the Ram Navami rallies in the state, it says. "The divisive politics of TMC will not work in the Hills". "TMC leaders are openly roaming around with arms and ammunitions and police is sitting", says state Congress President Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury. The other three seats are said to be disturbed.
