The Congress on Monday made a U-turn+ and admitted that party vice-president Rahul Gandhi did meet with Chinese ambassador Luo Zhaohui.
“Envoys met Rahul Gandhi, not only Chinese envoy but also Bhutanese envoy and ex-NSA Shiv Shankar Menon,” said party spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala, who had earlier in the day strongly denied media reports about the meeting.
“Various ambassadors and envoys keep meeting Congress president and vice-president from time to time on courtesy basis,” Surjewala further added.
