Handling of Doklam shows importance of India-China ties: Chinese foreign minister

Emphasising on India-China bilateral ties, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Monday said that the strategic interests of the neighbouring countries outweigh differences and "partial fractions".

Imparting fresh momentum to bilateral relationship, EAM Sushma Swaraj had a positive and "forward looking" meeting with Wang, MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted.Officials said there was a lot of "positivity" during the "frank" discussions Swaraj and Wang held on wide-ranging issues.

Wang made the remarks during the 15th trilateral meeting of the foreign ministers of the three countries.

The President also congratulated Yi on the successful conclusion of the 19th Congress of the Communist Party of China and stated that India looked forward to work with President Xi Jinping and the Chinese leadership and take their developmental partnership to greater heights.

Wang Yi's visit is the first high-level visit from China after Indian and Chinese troops were involved a tense face-off position in the Doklam region of the border earlier this year.

They expressed deep concern over the tension on the Korean Peninsula as a result of the nuclear and ballistic missile programmes of North Korea. "And it will be better to meet again and without agenda, which will help us expand our mutual understanding", Sushma said in a media statement after the talks. Making specific reference to the Doklam stand-off, he said the communist country showed restraint and resolved the issue diplomatically, which demonstrates "sincerity and sense of responsibility in maintaining regional peace and stability".

The three countries should support the United Nations (UN) in playing a key role in global affairs, stick to solving hot and thorny issues through political means, and push for democratic worldwide relations under the rule of law, said the Chinese top diplomat.

On OBOR, Lavrov said Russian Federation feels the concept is very interesting and needed to be explored in the context of building harmonious relationship for deeper regional trade and investment.

"Noting the significant increase of opium poppy production in Afghanistan and the nexus between narcotics revenue and its financial support for terrorism, we emphasise the need for stepping up result-oriented global efforts aimed at countering the Afghan drug threat", the statement said. "India strongly recommends a comprehensive policy for dealing with global terrorism", Swaraj said during her address at the meeting. "We wish to strengthen the trilateral dialogue for consultation and coordination on regional and global issues of mutual interest in the spirit of mutual understanding and trust".
