NEW DELHI: Foreign Ministers of India and China will meet tomorrow for a bilateral meeting in Moscow during which important international issues and terrorism in the region are likely to figure.

The meeting between External Affairs Minister S M Krishna and his Chinese counterpart Yang Jiechi will come on the sidelines of the crucial trilateral RIC -- Russia, India, China.

According to sources, apart from bilateral issues, the two leaders are expected to discuss terrorism in the region in view of the recent developments.

While the US has announced a USD 10 million bounty on Pakistan based Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed, China has pointed fingers at terror elements in Pakistan and froze assets of six absconding terrorists of a separatist outfit in Xinjiang, the native province of Muslim Uyghurs.

The bilateral meeting also comes in the backdrop of the war of words between India and China over India's oil exploration projects in Vietnamese oil blocks in South China Sea.

While China has been warning India to refrain from continuing these oil exploration projects in South China Sea, India's position has been that these blocks belong to Vietnam under the UN laws.

The progress made on boundary issue during the meeting between Special Representatives of the two countries is also likely to figure during Krishna-Yang meeting as there is a feeling in New Delhi that SR mechanism is making very "slow" progress.
