How can Sino-India relations be further developed?
First, we should build up mutual political trust. Both sides must maintain the momentum of high-level visits. They must further promote contacts and cooperation among the government sectors, legislatures, and in the fields of culture, science and technology, and so on. They must reinforce friendly exchanges among academics, NGOs, the media, and enhance understanding between our two countries and peoples, so as to deepen mutual trust and consolidate the foundation of friendship.
Secondly, we must address the interests and concerns of each other on the basis of mutual respect, and appropriately handle the pending issues between us through equal consultations.
Thirdly, we need to constantly expand our convergence interests, and further deepen economic and commercial cooperation. We need also to strengthen bilateral coordination and cooperation in international and regional affairs; actively promote multi-polarisation of the world and the democratisation of international relations; and collectively deal with the challenges, including the world financial crisis, climate change, and the food and energy crisis, so as to maintain and promote the interests of all developing countries.
