BEIJING - China welcomes mutual visits between India and Japan and wants to "actively develop" relations with both countries, Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said on Wednesday as Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda continued his state visit to India.

China's reaction to Noda's trip to India, which followed his two-day visit to Beijing, has been watched closely.

Hong said at a regular news conference that, during Noda's visit, China and Japan reached an important consensus on promoting a mutually beneficial strategic partnership.

"Both China and Japan think peaceful coexistence, mutually beneficial cooperation and common development are in the interests of the people of the two countries, and the peace, stability and development of the region," Hong said.

He said Sino-Indian relations had maintained a good development momentum.

"We think China and India should maintain political mutual trust, coordination and cooperation in economic, trade and international affairs," he said.

"China is willing to actively develop bilateral relations with Japan and India. We welcome the mutual state visits between Japan and India and their peaceful efforts in promoting regional development," Hong said.

Noda's visit to India came shortly after the first round of talks in Washington last week between the United States, India and Japan, and an India-Japan defense ministers' meeting in Tokyo in November.
