    Varun, sometimes it happens that we don't find correct info on even wikipedia. Please refer to these lines :
    """Meanwhile, Lim said the Indian ambassador also extended an invitation for him to pay a visit to New Delhi, which happens to be Manila’s sister-city, for purposes of cultural exchange"""
    This paragraph I have lifted from the official website of Manila City You can Check Here
