President Xi wishes for ‘healthy, stable bilateral ties’ with India

Xiamen (China): Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping met on the sidelines of the 9th BRICS Summit here on Tuesday, with Xi calling for “healthy, stable bilateral ties” between the two countries.

Healthy, stable bilateral ties are in line with the interests of both countries

Chinese President Xi Jinping said he was desirous of putting China’s relationship with India “on the right track”, Chinese state media reported.

In his opening remarks, Modi congratulated Xi for the “very successful” execution of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) Summit.

President Xi also told Prime Minister Narendra Modi that Beijing is prepared to work with Delhi “to seek guidance from Panchsheel”, or the five principles of co-existence, agencies reported.

Xi further told Modi that healthy, stable bilateral ties are in line with the interests of both countries, according to Xinhua.

“India and China are each other’s major neighbours, we are also two of the world’s largest and emerging countries,” Xi reportedly said.

Also Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping discussed the Doklam border row which ended last month and agreed that such incidents should not recur.

“I think one of the important points which was made in the meeting was that peace and tranquility in the border areas was a prerequisite for the further development of the bilateral relationship,” Indian Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar said here.

He said both the leaders agreed that “more efforts should be made to really enhance and strengthen the mutual level of trust between the two sides.

“It is natural that between large powers there would be areas of difference and it should be handled with mutual respect.

“Efforts should be made to find common ground in those areas… The defence and security personnel must maintain strong contact and cooperation and ensure that the sort of situation which happened recently should not recur,” Jaishankar said.
