Xinhua)  08:56, May 22, 2013  

The Chinese premier spoke highly of the broad strategic consensus reached during his visit and deepened strategic mutual trust.

"The fact that both countries have put their concerns on the table shows the sincerity of both sides toward their relationship and their wisdom to handle problems," Li said.

China and India can certainly push bilateral ties to a higher level if they maintain a future-oriented attitude, enhance mutual trust, focus on finding a solution to problems and work hard to deepen their cooperation, Li said.

The Chinese premier summarized the fruitful results of his Indian trip aimed at advancing the bilateral strategic cooperative partnership for peace and prosperity.

The two countries have launched new initiatives to advance comprehensive cooperation, identified new ways to combine and complement their markets, explored new measures to promote inter-connectivity between their economies, broadened the scope of cultural and people-to-people exchanges, and strengthened communication and coordination in international and regional affairs.

He pointed out that both sides have also agreed to continue to push forward negotiations on border issues.

Li noted that China's 30-plus years of development and progress have benefited from its policy of peaceful development.

"China will always be a steadfast guardian of world peace. It is ready to work with India and other South Asian countries to take its due responsibility to realize regional peace and development in order to make the Asian continent a place of peace, development and cooperation," said Li.

Li said his country has been sticking to the long-term strategic policy of developing friendly relations with India.
