A week before the 15th round of talks on the vexed boundary issue between India and China is likely to be held, Beijing on Wednesday asked New Delhi to resolve outstanding issues in a wise and calm manner.
State councilor Dai Bingguo, China's special representative for the talks which began in 1982, said, "We need to handle issues between the two countries wisely, calmly and properly and prevent them from becoming barriers between the two countries and obstacles to bilateral relations."
Beside the 4500 km-long border along largely mountainous terrain, there have been other "barriers'' which have frequently turned Indo-China relations frigid.
The high-ranking Chinese official did not mention any issue in particular. In his speech Dai also focused on the growing cooperation between the two Asian giants and the opportunities that lie ahead.
Quoting Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh and Premier Wen Jiabo, Bingguo said there was enough room for both countries to develop and work together in the world, adding that the two countries were becoming increasingly important in the region and the world.
