india Updated: Dec 06, 2006 10:52 IST

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Chinese counterpart Wen Jiabao are set to meet during the ASEAN Summit next week, a senior official said in Beijing on Wednesday.

"Premier Wen has met Prime Minister Singh several times and they enjoy a very good working relationship," Assistant Foreign Minister Cui Tiankai said.

"I am sure that the two Prime Ministers will be very happy to meet again in Cebu, in particular in light of the fact that President Hu Jintao made a very successful visit to India not long ago," Cui said.

The meeting is likely to take place on the sidelines of the 10th Summit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the 2nd East Asia Summit in Cebu, the Philippines, from December 11 to 14.
