Chinese State Councilor Dai Bingguo met with Sitaram Yechury, a member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) on Thursday, pledging to promote bilateral relations to a new high.
Bilateral relationship between China and India maintains a good momentum of development and faces unprecedented advancement opportunities, Dai said.
China and India are two biggest emerging and developing countries in the world, and strengthening communication and cooperation between the two sides will benefit both countries and be helpful in promoting the overall competitiveness and influence of developing countries, he added.
Dai noted that China, from a long-term strategic standpoint, is willing to work with India to increase mutual understanding and trust, expand the scope of communication and cooperation, and promote bilateral relations to a new high.
Yechury cited the huge potential for developing bilateral ties and expressed high expectations from Indian people and business society to cement cooperation between the two countries.
“The Communist Party of India hopes to play a positive role in maintaining the good development of bilateral relations and help further ties between the two sides.” Yechury said.
