As Indo-Pak Foreign Ministers met in Islamabad to restore trust in bilateral ties, China on Thursday said the improvement in relations between the two countries would be beneficial for peace, stability and development in Asia.
China welcomes and supports the dialogue between India and Pakistan to settle their differences and build mutual trust, Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang told a media briefing in Beijing.
His remarks came in response to a question on the meeting between External Affairs Minister S M Krishna and his Pakistani counterpart Shah Mahmood Qureshi in Islamabad.
"Both India and Pakistan are neighbours of China. The improvement in India-Pak relations is not only beneficial to South Asia's peace and stability but also peace, stability and development of the whole of Asia," he said.
