I am very happy to come to beautiful New Delhi again and hold a meeting with my colleagues in India. The 17th China-India border special issue met and launched the “China-India Friendship Exchange Year” to jointly commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence.
Sixty years ago, the leaders of China and India followed the trend of the times and jointly advocated the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence and opened a new chapter in international relations. Over the past 60 years, the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence have become the basic norms guiding international relations. They have made significant contributions to the promotion of world peace, stability, and human progress. Although they have experienced vicissitudes of life, they are still full of vitality.
With the process of economic globalization, China and India firmly grasp the historical opportunities and achieve sustained economic growth, becoming the most dynamic emerging market countries and the new engine of the Asian economy, not only benefiting the two peoples, but also Made new contributions to world peace and development. The two ancient civilizations are once again full of vitality.
In the new century, China and India have established a strategic partnership of cooperation for peace and prosperity. Friendship exchanges and mutually beneficial cooperation have yielded fruitful results. The bilateral trade volume between China and India was only 2.9 billion U.S. dollars in 2000, and reached 65.4 billion U.S. dollars in 2013, an increase of more than 20 times. The two countries have established a series of cooperation mechanisms such as the Strategic Economic Dialogue and proposed major cooperation initiatives such as the Bangladesh-China-India-Myanmar Economic Corridor. The cultural exchanges between the two countries have continued to expand and the friendship between the people has increased. The two countries work together to address global issues such as climate change, food and energy security, and work closely together on multilateral occasions such as the BRICS and the G20. I believe that this year’s “China-India Friendship Exchange Year” series of celebrations will definitely push China-India relations to a new climax!
China-India relations have achieved great development and are the common practice of the two countries. The outcome of the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence. We uphold mutual respect, enhance strategic mutual trust, and push bilateral relations to maturity. We adhere to mutual benefit and win-win results, expand exchanges and cooperation, and strive to make the development of bilateral relations benefit the two billion people of the two countries. We insist on taking care of each other’s concerns, properly controlling differences, and exploring a new model for advancing bilateral relations and properly handling differences. More importantly, we follow the historical trend and the international trend, insist on examining China-India relations from a global and strategic perspective, and firmly believe that the world has enough space for China-India common development, and the world needs China-India common development.
China and India are partners. The development of China-India strategic partnership not only serves the fundamental interests of the two countries and their peoples, but will also make a tremendous contribution to world peace and prosperity.
When President Xi Jinping met with Prime Minister Singh last October, he pointed out that the Chinese dream and the Indian dream are closely related and mutually compatible. Both the Chinese dream and the Indian dream are dreams of strengthening the country and enriching the people and the dream of national rejuvenation. They reflect the common aspirations of the 2.5 billion people of the two countries and reflect the common aspirations of the developing countries. As the world’s two ancient civilizations and the two largest developing countries and emerging market countries, China and India’s respective development and mutual relations can bring more benefits and expectations to the two peoples. The world will contribute more to the strength of peace, security and cooperation, and will make new and positive contributions to the progress of human civilization.
The Third Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee held in November last year made a new deployment on comprehensive deepening reform. India is also working to implement reforms and strive to achieve economically inclusive growth. The development potential of China-India relations is huge and the space for cooperation is infinite. Looking forward to the future, the beautiful dreams of China and India are not out of reach. As long as China and India join hands and take a path of peaceful development, cooperative development and common development, we will be able to realize the dream of national rejuvenation. This is also the blessing of Asia and the blessing of the world.
