In a move to ease recent tension in ties, the Communist Party of China’s mouthpiece released an editorial on Thursday seeking more cooperation between India and China based on ‘common interests’ and blaming the west for ‘fabricating’ rivalry between the neighbours.

“Some western media agencies have hyped the so-called competition between the dragon and elephant and dragon and the tigers, and fabricated the prospect for conflicts,’’ said the website of the People’s Daily, China’s official Party newspaper.

Blaming the West for ‘outdated’ views and ‘overly exaggerating’ differences between India and China, the editorial said that the leadership of both nations believed in their shared common interests.

There was no mention of India’s protests after Beijing denied a visa to an Indian army commander in July because Jammu and Kashmir was under his purview.
