A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman said Tuesday China and India keep friendly and cooperative relations, dismissing reports that a missile test by India poses a threat to China.

India successfully test-fired a nuclear-capable missile Sunday, which some reports said put China's major cities within its strike range.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu refused to comment on the reports at a regular news briefing, only saying that China-India relations maintain their good momentum.

"I don't want to interpret or comment on the reports," Ma said.

"The China-India relation is friendly and cooperative. China will not be a threat to India, and nor will India pose a threat to China," Ma added.

"Bilateral ties will move forward with the joint effort of both countries," he said.
