External affairs minister SM Krishna on Thursday said one should not be "over-sensitive" about relations with China and stressed that the bilateral ties were on a strong footing.
"Well, let us not be over-sensitive about our relations with China. The relationship between India and China are on a strong footing," Krishna told reporters accompanying him on his way back home from Sri Lanka.
He was responding to a question whether the relations between India and China were witnessing trouble again in the backdrop of the recent incidents like Indian traders being held in China and reports that Beijing refused to give visa to an Indian military delegation.
"India has strategic partnership with China. We have good bilateral relations with China," he said.
