China has said it hopes to continue to strengthen cooperation and coordination with India in international affairs and work together to maintain peace in border areas.
China's position was articulated by State Councilor Yang Jiechi during talks with National Security Advisor Shivshankar Menon on the sidelines of a meeting of senior BRICS representatives on national security in Cape Town on Friday.
Yang told Menon that China hopes to continue to strengthen cooperation and communication with India, enhance coordination in regional and international affairs and work together to maintain peace in border areas, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
Menon hoped China and India could maintain high-level exchanges, cement various negotiation mechanisms and expand cooperation to push forward bilateral relations to a higher level.
In October, India and China inked the Border Defence Cooperation Agreement during Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's visit to Beijing to maintain peace and tranquillity on the Line of Actual Control.
Earlier, addressing a meeting of the BRICS national security advisers, Yang called for strengthening security cooperation among the member countries.
BRICS nations should strengthen cooperation and coordination to play their roles in safeguarding international and regional peace and stability, he said.
Yang said cyber and information security is vital to national security and social stability, and BRICS members should jointly promote information security and solve cyber disputes through negotiation.
BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) countries should strengthen cooperation on cyber security and set up platforms for exchanges, he said.
