Q: Recently, Indian Minister of External Affairs said at the Asian Security Conference that the trust and cooperation between India and China was an important factor that ensures a vigorous regional economy in Asia, and that differences did not hinder the progress of bilateral relations in various fields. What comment do you have on this?
A: I have read the recent remarks of Indian officials on China-Indian relations, which gave a positive comment on China-Indian relations. We welcome and appreciate this. Over the recent years, China and India have maintained a sound momentum in the steady development of bilateral relations through joint efforts. Our relations have entered a entirely new stage. Not long ago, we successfully held the first round of strategic dialogue between us. China is willing to work with India to push forward the continuous, healthy and steady development of our good-neighborly friendship and mutually beneficial cooperation.
