China aims at common development with neighbours: Xi Jingping

Oct 26 2013, 8:34am CDT | by IANS

Beijing, Oct 26 (IANS) Chinese President Xi Jinping said Beijing will strive for a sound neighbouring environment for its own development and seek common development with neighbours.

Beijing, Oct 26 — Chinese President Xi Jinping said Beijing will strive for a sound neighbouring environment for its own development and seek common development with neighbours.

Speaking at a conference on relations with neighbouring countries here, Xi stressed the necessity of good diplomatic work to realise the "centenary goals" set by the 18th Communist Party National Congress in 2012 - a moderately prosperous society by 2021 and a prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced, harmonious and modern socialist country by 2049.

The Oct 24-25 conference was attended by all members of the Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee's Politburo.

Stating that diplomatic relations rely on the bond shared by people, Xi said people-to-people exchange should involve tourism, technology, education and sub-national cooperation, among others, to make many different kinds of friends, the China Daily reported Saturday.

"We should clearly present our policies to the outside world, tell China's story in an acceptable way, speak out so that we are heard, and interpret the Chinese dream from the perspective of the aspiration of all people in all countries for a better life and regional prosperity, and let the sense of common destiny take root with our neighbours."

Talking about security issue, Xi, who is also chairman of the Central Military Commission, called for advancing security cooperation with neighbours, actively participate in regional and sub-regional security cooperation, and enhance cooperation mechanisms and strategic mutual trust.

China should work with its neighbours to hasten interconnectivity and establish a Silk Road economic belt and a maritime Silk Road for the 21st century, he said.

The country should accelerate establishment of free trade zones, with neighbours as the foundation stone, expand trade and investment and create a new pattern of regional economic integration, he said.

The president urged accelerating the opening up of border areas and deepening reciprocal cooperation between Chinese border areas and neighbouring countries.

On geography, environment and intertwined relations, Xi said the neighbouring region has major strategic significance. Dealing with neighbours "should have a three-dimensional, multi-element perspective, beyond time and space".

He said that they must strive to make neighbours more friendly in politics, economically more closely tied to them, and "we must have deeper security cooperation and closer people-to-people ties".

While the official United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) meetings have the potential to usher in bold treaties, they are also subject to bickering over minutia and watering down of expectations.

How Modi's India Is Reshaping Asia

Sep 16 2014 10:56am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

NEW DELHI -- During his spirited campaign for parliamentary elections held earlier this year, Narendra Modi, the right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate, hardly spoke about foreign policy issues. Other than a few sharp barbs he aimed at Pakistan, China and Bangladesh -- favorite targets of "nationalist Hindus" -- he kept his counsel to himself on this score. But after his triumphant victory in the e ...

India and China Have Outgrown the West

NEW DELHI -- From the heady days of "Chindia," when China and India were twinned together in the global imagination, comparisons between the two countries have taken on a more modest hue. Once united by their shared status of being giant Asian countries with booming demographies and unlimited economic potential, the two are perceived to be very different today. India's incomplete domestic transformation, recently slowin ...
