BEIJING, Feb. 8 (Xinhua) -- A senior leader of the Communist Party of China (CPC) on Wednesday called for boosting the China-India strategic and cooperative partnership to a higher level.

Zhou Yongkang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, made the remark during a meeting with visiting Indian Foreign Minister S.M. Krishna. Zhou recalled his visit to India in 2010, saying the visit showcased the growing momentum of China-India relations.

Zhou said China and India, as the world's largest developing economies, have multiple opportunities for national development and bilateral cooperation, expressing his hope that both nations can expand cooperation in infrastructure construction, information technology and manufacturing in order to boost two-way trade to 100 billion U.S. dollars by 2015.

Zhou also said he hoped the two sides can deepen political trust, improve personnel exchanges, properly handle questions left over by history, such as the border issue, and jointly safeguard peace and harmony in border areas.
