The Times of India published an article on Oct. 7 calling on India to “bury the ghosts” of the war between China and India in 1962 and to exist peacefully with China.

Not long ago, Ratan Tata, chairman of the Tata Group, one of the largest conglomerates in India, said that China’s great economic strength is not a real concern, and India should instead build an alliance with China.

"I would prefer to use China as a very strong ally, to forge a relationship with China which would be a sustaining one and I think it could be done,” Tata said.

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, foreign minister, and other top officials have repeatedly said this year that India has no intention of and will not participate in any strategy aimed at containing China, and will improve relations with both China and the United States.

The Indian government’s rational stance serves the fundamental interests of the Chinese and Indian people, and is in line with the current situation of China-India relations.

There are some historical issues and minor disputes concerning realistic interests between China and India. As a major power, India has increased its armaments due to diplomatic needs. However, the two countries have far more common interests than differences.
