India, China must respect each other's core concerns: Jaishankar
Beijing: India and China should find stronger convergences, respect each other's core concerns and manage their differences, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has said as he underlined that the relationship between the two Asian giants has become "so big" that it has acquired a "global dimension".
Jaishankar, who concluded his three-day visit to Beijing on Tuesday, held extensive talks with his counterpart Wang Yi on the entire gamut of the India-China ties. He also called on Vice President Wang Qishan, a close confidant of President Xi Jinping.
As the two largest developing countries and emerging economies, cooperation between India and China is of great importance to the world, Jaishankar told state-run Xinhua news agency here in an interview on Sunday.
China and India are the world's only two emerging economies that boast a population of more than 1 billion, respectively.
"Our relationship is so big that it is no longer a bilateral relationship. It has global dimensions," Xinhua quoted Jaishankar as saying.
