China's Xi pushes for 'healthy' ties with India after border standoff

05 September 2017

The brief report by the Chinese state news agency, Xinhua, said that President Xi said that "healthy and stable relations between China and India are in line with the fundamental interests of their people".

The Prime Minister left for Nay Pyi Taw, the capital city of Myanmar, from this southeastern Chinese city where he attended the annual BRICS summit and held talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping, Russian President Vladimir Putin and other world leaders.

The BRICS acronym refers to Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.

Asked if the joint declaration will help India's case to designate Azhar as an worldwide terrorist, an MEA functionary said: "The declaration has been endorsed by all the BRICS leaders".

They also need to forge chains of interconnected development and seek strength in unity, the Chinese president continued.

The meeting between Modi and Xi was being keenly watched in the wake of the Doklam border row, which pitted the armies of the two countries against each other for over two months.

China, a key ally of Pakistan, has repeatedly blocked India's attempts to have the leader of Jaish-e-Mohammad, Masood Azhar, put on a U.N. Security Council terror blacklist.

The meeting comes after diplomatic efforts by the two sides to resolve the border tension caused by the 73-day face-off between their troops in the Dokalam area of the Sikkim sector. In his address, PM Modi said that a coordinated action and cooperation is needed to deal with terrorism. The two countries fought a war over their border in 1962.

"We deplore all terrorist attacks worldwide, including attacks in BRICS countries". "I believe my colleagues have said from this podium that as a host China will arrange meetings with participating leaders", foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said.

"Some countries have become more inward-looking, and their desire to participate in global development cooperation has decreased", Xi said. The BRICS countries included names of terrorist organizations based in Pakistan like Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed in their manifesto.

"The partnerships you have forged and the networks you have created are energizing the economic growth stories in each BRICS country", he said, while praising the council for entering into a memorandum of understanding with the New Development Bank, the multilateral development bank established by the BRICS member states.
