China, Pakistan and Russia are likely to hold a consultation on Afghanistan in Moscow on December 27, Pakistan today reports.
Replying to question about China-India relations at a news briefing, the spokesperson said the two countries were marching towards the goal of forging a more closely-knit partnership for development.
It is normal for the two big countries who are also close neighbours to differ on some issues. But the main theme for the bilateral relationship is friendship and cooperation, while differences are secondary.
The two sides are in touch with each other on the relevant issues, and China would like to work with India, following the consensus reached by the two leaders, to expand mutually beneficial cooperation, properly manage differences, and ensure the sustained and steady development of bilateral ties.
As for India’s application to join the NSG and the listing matter of the UN Security Council 1267 Committee, he said China’s position is very clear and unchanged.
