'Don't let border row affect China, India ties'

Jul 23 2013, 4:36am CDT | by IANS

Beijing, July 23 (IANS) It is "unwise to let isolated incidents along the border to negatively affect the promising China-India relationship", Xinhua news agency said Tuesday.

Beijing, July 23 — It is "unwise to let isolated incidents along the border to negatively affect the promising China-India relationship", Xinhua news agency said Tuesday.

"...it is worth noting that both Beijing and New Delhi have repeatedly said they are committed to maintaining peace and stability along the border before the issues are completely resolved", Xinhua said in a commentary on the day when India and China began two-day talks as part of a border mechanism to ensure peace and tranquility on their disputed boundary.

"The disputes, a historical hangover, were not created in one day, neither will they be resolved overnight. It is unwise to let isolated incidents along the border negatively affect the promising China-India relationship," it said.

"China and India, as two major emerging economies, have much to gain by further deepening political and economic ties.

"Despite sometimes frosty political relations, China has become one of India's top trading partners. Both countries have agreed to increase their bilateral trade, standing at $66.5 billion in 2012, to $100 billion by 2015."

The Chinese news agency said that the two economies can also work on more joint investment projects.

The commentary said that Beijing and New Delhi should build on "the positive momentum yielded by Premier Li's visit".

"After all, the right track forward for the two giant neighbours is to boost investments, expand trade and strengthen links so that both countries can benefit from the win-win cooperation."

Xinhua noted that the Indian media, "which have traditionally focused heavily on the border disputes between New Delhi and Beijing, are now asserting again that Chinese troops have crossed the `border' between the two countries".

This came just a few months after similar reports soured to some extent the atmosphere ahead of Premier Li's India visit, the news agency said, adding: "Fortunately, Beijing and New Delhi, with political wisdom, made joint efforts to defuse the tensions timely, and the visit, part of Li's maiden overseas tour since assuming premiership in March, turned out a big success."

It went on to say that Li and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, through candid talks and in-depth discussions, substantially enhanced strategic mutual trust, which is a valuable thing for two countries that fought a brief border war in 1962.

"Looking back on the Indian media hype about `Chinese border intrusions', one has to admit such sensational reports are indeed harmful to the China-India relationship. Such reports have only served to further sow misunderstandings between Indians and Chinese even at a time when their leaders are working hard to manage their differences and to build a constructive relationship that can benefit both sides," the commentary said.

The reported incursion by Chinese troops in Ladakh's Chumar sector comes after the three-week intrusion by Peoples Liberation Army troops April 15 in the region's Depsang area. The Depsang intrusion, which led to heightening of tension between both sides, was resolved following intense negotiations through their joint mechanisms for resolving such issues.

According to reports, Chinese troops on horseback crossed the Line of Actual Control on three occasions - on July 16, 17 and 20, in Chumar and on one occasion held posters asking the Indian forces to "vacate Chinese territory".
