(India is China’s closest link / almost neighbour / partner. Together India and China are super powers in Asia and can be so in the World as well in the coming days. There are so many similarities between both the countries. Both have gigantic people power to achieve everything possible and also impossible when stressed at the fullest. …It is in the interest of both China and India to ensure that both flourish equally well with mutual cooperation, affinity, bondage, covalent axis suiting both at all times. China wants India to be with it as India so wants really which is fully evident from Prime Minister ModiJee’s visit here and his meetings with Leaders of China. Its truly unprecedented. It needs to be carried forward always. No forces against it should be allowed to spoil it in any way. Modi Wins…Thumbs Up. 3 Cheers to India-China/China-India long lasting relations. Hip Hip Hurrah. )
Prime Minister Narendra Modi now fully pally, albeit, constructive+positive+strategic, with China, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, Chinese masses, Chinese officials…fully evident during a press conference at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, China Friday, May 15, 2015.
Modi said the Chinese leaders had been sensitive to India’s concerns about its growing trade deficit with China, which reached $48 billion last year.
As a partial solution, the sides agreed to create a high-level body dedicated to expanding economic relations in areas including infrastructure, information technology, pharmaceuticals, agriculture and manufacturing, he said.
Following their meeting, Modi and Li presided at the signing of 24 agreements on cooperation in areas from high-speed rail to the establishment of a yoga college in the southwestern Chinese city of Kunming.
The two countries also agreed to open a third consulate in each other’s countries. India’s will be in the sprawling inland metropolis of Chengdu, and China’s in Kolkata, the largest city on India’s east coast.
Modi said they agreed to intensify confidence-building measures along the disputed Himalayan border over which they fought a bloody monthlong conflict in 1962. While any border agreement resolving the dispute looks unlikely, India and China at least appear to be willing to avoid incidents, such as Chinese incursions into what India considers its territory over the last two years.
“We both reiterated our strong commitment to make all efforts to maintain peace and tranquility in the border region,” said Modi, adding he had again urged China to agree to clarify the line of control dividing the country’s frontier troops.
Li said the sides would continue to hold talks in search of a “fair resolution pending the final resolution of the boundary question.”
Modi returned to the border issue in a speech at Beijing’s prestigious Tsinghua University, saying a “shadow of uncertainty ” would hang over the frontier until India and China agreed on the line of control.
“That is why I have proposed resuming the process of clarifying it. We can do this without prejudice to our position on the boundary question,” he said.

That’s not all. PM Modi after this voiced concern over China’s investments in PoK, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked it to “reconsider” its approach on some of the issues and take a strategic and long term view to push the relationship, which has been “complex” in recent decades.
Modi, who held wide-range talks with his counterpart Li Keqiang, sought tangible progress on issues relating to visa, an apparent reference to stapled visas issued by China to residents of Arunachal Pradesh, as he underlined that the two countries need to be “sensitive to each other’s interests”.
He stressed the need for strengthening mutual trust and confidence while seeking solutions to outstanding issues.
“Our conversations were candid, constructive and friendly. We covered all issues, including those that trouble smooth development of our relations,” Modi said at a joint press interaction here along with Li after the talks held at the Great Hall of People.
“I stressed the need for China to reconsider its approach on some of the issues that hold us back from realising full potential of our partnership. I suggested that China should take a strategic and long term view of our relations,” Modi said.
The statement comes a day after Modi raised concern with Chinese President Xi Jinping during their talks in Xi’an over China’s USD 46 billion proposed investment in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
“I found the Chinese leadership responsive,” he said, adding that the re-emergence of India and China and their relationship will have a profound impact on the two countries and the course of this century.
Noting that India-China relationship has been “complex in recent decades”, Modi said the two countries have a “historic responsibility to turn this relationship into a source of strength for each other and a force of good for the world.”
On the boundary question, Modi said the two sides agreed to continue to explore a fair, reasonable and mutually acceptable resolution.
“We both reiterated our strong commitment to make all efforts to maintain peace and tranquillity in the border region,” he said.
The Prime Minister said during his talks with Li he also reiterated the importance of clarification of Line of Actual Control.
China claims the border dispute is confined only to 2,000 kms mostly in Arunachal Pradesh whereas India asserts that the dispute covered the western side of the border spanning to about 4,000 kms, especially the Aksai Chin area ceded to China by Pakistan.
“We are committed to set a new direction between the two largest Asian countries. I believe that my discussions with President Xi and Premier Li have advanced our relationship in that direction,” Modi said.
Modi said President Xi and Premier Li were very receptive to the specific concerns he had raised on the growing trade deficit which is in favour of China to the tune of USD 38 billion.
“We have set a high-level of ambition for our economic partnership. We see enormous bilateral opportunities and many similar challenges, like urbanisation,” he said, adding he is looking forward to early impact on the ground.
On his part, Premier Li acknowledged that there were differences between the two sides on the border issue and said the two countries need to uphold peace and tranquillity.
“We do not deny that there are some disagreements between us but there is a mechanism and sufficient political maturity to address them,” he said.
“We stand ready to work with India to bring China-India relations to new heights,” he said, adding both the countries need to seize the opportunities to play a bigger role in Asia and beyond.
Li said China and India are two important countries for the establishment of a multi-polar world.
Underlining that Modi’s visit has brought about “many pragmatic results” ranging from space to maritime setup, Li said: “China stands ready to enhance cooperation with India and also is ready to take steps to balance our trade.”
