After morning of denials, Congress accepts Rahul Gandhi met Chinese envoy

The Congress on Monday accepted its vice president Rahul Gandhi met the Chinese envoy, hours after the opposition party denied that the leader met ambassador Luo Zhaohui two days ago.

Gandhi met both the Chinese ambassador, the Bhutanese envoy and former national security adviser Shiv Shankar Menon, Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala told ANI news agency .

It was Surjewala who had tweeted the denial in the morning.

“A wanting to be ‘Bhakt’ channel will not question 3 Union Ministers visiting China or PM’s bonhomie & praise at G20 yet run fake news!,” he said.

“Before MEA & IB sources plant news with ‘Bhakts’, they should reverify that we still have diplomatic relations with all our neighbours.”
