Beijing [China], Sept. 5 (ANI): In the first bilateral talks after the Doklam crisis, President Xi Jinping reaffirmed that both India and China shall seek common grounds and put aside differences, and uphold peace and tranquillity on the border area.

Geng Shuang, a Chinese foreign ministry spokesman said that President Xi, in the meeting, pointed out that both the neighbouring countries should stick to the basic judgement that two sides constitute opportunities instead of posing threats to each other.

It is hoped that India can view China's development in a correct and rational way and let the world know peaceful coexistence and win-win cooperation is the only correct choice of China and India, Xi said in the meeting.

As per Shuang, President Xi said that there is potential for China-India cooperation in terms of economic and social development.

President Xi further pointed out that, the two sides should synergize each other's development strategy, expand co-operations in infrastructure construction and interconnectivity, advance personnel and cultural exchange, strengthen communication and coordination on international affairs, and push ahead with the development of international order in a fair and rational direction.

He also asserted that Beijing would like to work with BRICS countries to implement the outcome of Xiamen summit and open a new dimension of BRICS cooperation. (ANI)
