BEIJING, April 20 (Xinhua) -- Senior officials of China and India had an "extensive, deep and candid" discussion on boundary issues on Wednesday in Beijing, said a press release from the Chinese Foreign Ministry.

The 19th round of talks between Chinese and Indian special representatives on boundary issues was co-chaired by Chinese State Councilor Yang Jiechi and India's National Security Adviser Ajit Doval.

Both sides agreed to adhere to peaceful negotiations to settle the boundary question. They will make efforts to reach a fair, reasonable and mutually acceptable solution, said the press release.

They will properly manage differences and safeguard peace and tranquility in the border areas so as to create favorable conditions for development of bilateral ties, it said.

Both sides shared the view that China-India relations have broad prospects and Beijing and New Delhi have far more common interests than differences.

Bilateral ties have entered a new era of comprehensive and rapid development since Chinese President Xi Jinping paid a successful visit to India in 2014 and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited China in 2015, said the press release.

Both sides should implement the important consensus between the leaders, enhance high-level interactions, tap the potential of cooperation, and promote China-India relations to a higher level, it said.
