MUMBAI, May 22 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Li Keqiang's visit to India helped build strategic mutual trust and deepen bilateral cooperation between the two neighbors, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said here Wednesday.

Noting that there are rarely two countries in the world with so many similarities like China and India, Wang said Beijing and New Delhi are natural strategic partners.

"The strategic significance was often overlooked in the past. Li's starting point provides us with a more objective perspective of viewing China-India relations," Wang said.

During Li's trip, which started on Sunday, he met Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, President Pranab Mukherjee and Hamid Ansari, Chairman of Rajya Sabha (the Upper House) of India's Parliament and Vice President.

Li said the most important outcome of his talks with Indian leaders is that they reached strategic consensus and deepened strategic trust.

"The peace of the world and the stability of the region cannot be guaranteed without strategic mutual trust between China and India," he said at a welcoming ceremony on Monday.

The significance of bilateral cooperation extends well beyond themselves. It is a blessing not only to the Chinese and Indian peoples, but also to Asia and the world, Li added.

Wang said another focus of Li's visit is to seek and expand strategic consensus between China and India, and to make that consensus always be the mainstream of bilateral ties.

During Li's visit, China and India issued a joint statement Monday highlighting their commitment to expanding common ground in bilateral cooperation and coordination in various fields.

On the border issue, which is left over by history, the two sides believe they have over time established the principles of settling those questions. And in the meantime, the two sides have worked together to maintain tranquility and peace in the border areas.
