China on Monday said it would explore new areas for cooperation and ensure steady development of bilateral ties which hold "great potential". "China attaches great importance to developing relations with India and we would like to work together to implement the consensus reached by leaders, stick to the right path of the bilateral ties, accumulate more positive energy, explore new areas for cooperation and ensure sound and steady development of bilateral ties," said Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying.

Responding to a question on the warming up of Sino-Indian ties, Hua said, "This year, under the guidance of the two leaders, China-India relations have been developing with a sound momentum. We have seen close exchanges at all levels and new progress in all around-cooperation." She said Political Bureau Member Yang Jiechi met the Indian National Security Advisor Ajit Doval in Shanghai and the 11th Joint Economic Group meeting and the 5th Strategic Economic Dialogue were held "successfully".

"Officials from the two foreign ministers also met. The two sides held working mechanism meeting on border affairs and cross border rivers. This interaction show that China and India share a wide range of common interests and our bilateral cooperation holds great potential."India's External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will visit China later this month.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit China in June to attend the Shanghai Cooperation Summit where he will hold bilateral talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
