India, China talk of strengthening bilateral ties

New Delhi, Sept 16 (ANI): India and China said Monday that strong bilateral relations between both countries would benefit Asia.

"Often, we find ourselves speaking of the 21st century being the Asian century, and it is our firm belief that the Asian century dream will remain unfulfilled if India and China are not able to find concurrence on important ways in which we think on global issues," Khurshid said at the inauguration of the India-China Media Forum being held here.

China's Minister of the State Council Information Office Cai Mingzhao said both New Delhi and Beijing must continue to work together, while keeping their self interests in mind.

"Looking to the future of China-India relations, it has great potential for growth. As close neighbours and partners, friendly and pragmatic cooperation between China and India is in the fundamental interest of both nations. It is also a blessing for Asia and the world," he said. (ANI)
