A top diplomat stated on Wednesday that China hopes that a visit by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to the country will materialise in the coming months or by early next year.
"It (the visit) was proposed, she was invited. We look forward to it in the coming months or early next year", Consul General of China in Kolkata Ma Zhanwu said.
"We are still working on it", Zhanwu said.
