Chinese state councilor leaves for boundary talks with India


09:53, January 15, 2012

BEIJING, Jan. 15 (Xinhua) -- Chinese State Councilor Dai Bingguo left Beijing for New Delhi on Sunday morning to attend the 15th meeting between special representatives on China-India border issues.

Special representatives from China and India will meet to discuss border issues from Jan. 15 to 17 in India, according to the Foreign Ministry.

China and India share a 2,000-km border, which has never been formally delimited. The two began to discuss border issues in the 1980s.

Two agreements were signed in 1993 and 1996, respectively, to maintain peace and stability in border areas.

Hopefully China realizes that in 30 years from now, it would rather have India as an ally rather than Pakistan. If China decides to shun India, then the US, EU or Russia will prefer more favor with India.
