The 5th India-China Strategic Dialogue was held at New Delhi today. The Indian side was led by Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh and the Chinese side was led by Vice Foreign Minister Liu Zhenmin. The discussions covered bilateral, regional and global issues of mutual interest.

Taking stock of developments in bilateral ties since the successful visit to India of Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, the two sides discussed several issues including enhancing understanding on the utilization of trans-border river waters, expanding bilateral trade and investment while addressing problems of the large and growing deficit faced by India, ways of maintaining peace and tranquility along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the India-China border areas, methods of boosting cultural cooperation as well as people-to-people exchanges and expansion of scientific and technological cooperation. The two sides also discussed the possibility of a visit to China, later this year, by Prime Minster Dr. Manmohan Singh. The potential and prospect for BCIM economic cooperation was also touched upon.

Future cooperation in the BRICS framework, ways of ensuring an open, inclusive and transparent architecture in the Asia-Pacific region and the outlook for Afghanistan in 2014 and beyond were other areas of discussion between the two sides.
