Chinese Premier Li Keqiang arrived in India on Sunday on the first leg of a four-nation tour that will also take him to Pakistan, Switzerland and Germany.

During his stay, Li will meet with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and President Pranab Mukherjee among other leaders, and deliver a speech on China-India ties, Xinhua said.

The two sides are expected to sign several bilateral agreements and discuss investment, trade and regional security.

According to the Chinese government, Li's choice of India for his first trip abroad since taking office in March shows Beijing's determination to strengthen relations with New Delhi.
