Trump claims that he downplayed the dangers posed by the novel coronavirus only to protect the Americans, instead of panicking.

The talks had originally been slated to start in March but were repeatedly pushed back amid disputes over a prisoner exchange that included the release of hundreds of battle-hardened Taliban fighters.

The five-point statement issued after more than two hour long talks between India's external affairs minister Dr S Jaishankar and Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi will "guide their approach to the current situation".

As many as 10 people were killed and hundreds injured after rioting took place in the Colombian capital Bogota over the death of a man after police repeatedly used a taser on him, officials said on Thursday.
