China omits Li's comments on incursion

BEIJING, May 20, 2013, PTI: 2:01 IST
Even though the border standoff in Ladakh figured prominently during the talks between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Premier Li Keqiang in New Delhi, the issue was conspicuously missing from the Chinese leader’s remarks circulated by the Foreign Ministry here .

“I want this visit to show the world that China-India political mutual trust is being strengthened, their practical cooperation has been expanded, their common interests far outweigh their dispute and differences”, Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei quoted Premier Li as saying in his talks with Prime Minister Singh.

Hong was replying to a question on Manmohan Singh-Li talks held Sunday night during a dinner meeting in New Delhi.

Li said China and India are important neighbours to each other and two most populous emerging market economies and their relations have strategic significance.

“To stress on practical cooperation for common development between India and China will deliver benefits to peoples of the two countries as well as peace, stability and prosperity of the region and beyond”, Hong quoted Li as saying.

Referring to recent meeting between Singh and Chinese President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of the BRICS summit, Li said leaders of the two countries have a broad consensus on pushing their relations to a new high.
