Chinese President Xi Jinping met with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who came to China to attend the 9th BRICS Summit and Dialogue Between Emerging Market Economies and Developing Countries in Xiamen on September 5.
During the meeting, President Xi stressed that China and India are each other’s important neighbour and we are the two largest developing countries and emerging markets. A sound and stable China-India relationship serves the fundamental interests of the two peoples and is the shared aspiration of this region and the international community at large. Over recent years, the leaders of the two countries have reached broad consensus on developing China-India relations, agreed to build closer development partnership and identified the long-term goal for the development of China-India relations. Under the guidance of the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence, China stands ready to work with India to enhance mutual political trust , promote mutually beneficial cooperation and move forward China-India relations in a right track.
President Xi pointed out that, China and India should stay committed to the basic judgment that two sides present development opportunities and pose no threat to each other. We hope the Indian side can look at China’s development in a correct and rational light. We shall show the world that peaceful coexistence and win-win cooperation are the only right choice for China and India. The two sides should respect each other, seek common ground while shelving differences and uphold peace and tranquility in our border areas. China and India have great potential for cooperation in socio-economic development. The two sides need to strengthen the synergy of development strategy, expand cooperation in infrastructure construction and connectivity, enhance people-to-people and cultural communication, reinforce communication and coordination in international affairs and make the international order more just and equitable. China is willing to work with BRICS countries to ensure sound implementation of the outcomes of the BRICS Xiamen Summit and jointly open up a new dimension for BRICS cooperation.
