China will take into account India's downstream interests on the transborder Brahmaputra river when constructing hydropower projects, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said on Thursday.

Work began on damming the river, known in China as the Yarlung Tsangpo, in November, sparking Indian concerns of its potential downstream impact.

Wen was speaking during his three-day visit to New Delhi.
