Better ties with China can make Asian Century reality: Khurshid

‘We have an important strategic partnership. We are looking at important economic collaboration,’ Khurshid said, talking about the promises Prime Minister’s visit to Beijing later this month holds.

‘We want to collaborate with China on the International sphere. Better relations with China and a better understanding with China will give the Asian Century opportunity to become a reality,’ he said. External Affairs Minister said India was looking forward to greater investments from China.

‘We are opening up to China, the counrty has a lot of funds to invest. We are hoping that China and India can work together in inwards investment into India through special economic industrial zones for China,’ he said.

On being asked whether India should tell China to ‘walk the talk’ on border negotiations, Khurshid said, ‘I think we do. Intemperate language is not necessarily the best way of conveying a firm point of view that there are some preconditions.’

‘Don’t forget that the talk that takes place, one of the objectives of the talk is to have peace and tranquillity on the border,’ he said.
