BEIJING, May 10 (Xinhua) -- Indian Foreign Minister Salman Khurshid's ongoing visit to China reaffirmed the consensus of the two giant neighbors to achieve win-win results and properly handle disputes toward building a new-type relationship between major countries of the world.

The trip drew world attention as it took place after a border incident between the two nations, and western media tended to cast China-India ties in the light of "border row" or "strategic rivalry."

But the fact is that Khurshid's China tour was planned long before the border spat happened, and is an integral part of the high-level exchanges agreed upon by leaders of the two sides.

While we shouldn't pretend that border disputes and historical issues don't exist between the two nations, it is hard to deny that the problems were often solved in a quick fashion as the two-way ties are getting more mature each day.

For international observers, being fixated on border spats, which are not rare between neighboring nations, risks missing the grand picture of the overall positive trend of the China-India relationship and the huge opportunities and benefits it could bring to the region and the world.

The new Chinese leadership has declared that it regards the ties with India as one of Beijing's most important foreign relations and Khurshid, the Indian foreign minister, reiterated New Delhi's willingness to expand bilateral cooperation during his ongoing trip.

China and India are both world's great ancient civilizations with splendid cultures, and now they are both leading emerging economies and important countries with shared responsibilities in safeguarding regional and global security and prosperity.

The potential for bilateral cooperation is huge, as China has become one of India's top trading partners with a shared goal to raise their annual trade volume to 100 billion U.S. dollars in 2015.
