Q: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in his keynote speech at the Shangri-La Dialogue that Asia and the world will have a better future when India and China work together with trust and confidence. India and China have displayed maturity and wisdom in managing issues and ensuring a peaceful border. His speech has many facets as regards the India-China relations and India’s strategies and outlook on the world. What is your comment?
A: We have noted and highly commend these positive remarks by Prime Minister Modi on China-India relations. President Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Modi had a successful informal meeting in Wuhan at the end of April. They had a robust exchange of views and reached extensive consensus on the international situation and bilateral relations, including on handling disputes and issues with maturity and wisdom through peaceful dialogues. All these have enhanced our mutual trust. China stands ready to work with India to implement the important consensus reached between the two leaders, sustain the hard-won and positive developing momentum for bilateral relations, enhance political mutual trust, promote mutually beneficial cooperation, properly handle differences, uphold peace and tranquility in the border areas, and ensure the sound and steady development of China-India relations.
