外文标题：China praises Modi's leadership, sees likely resolution of border dispute
BEIJING: Ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit here next month, China on Wednesday said the border dispute has "good prospects" of resolution if it is backed by "strong political will" from both sides.
Huang Xilian, deputy director general of Asian affairs, said Beijing wants India and China to act as a "bridge" for the development of Nepal and Sri Lanka so as to reduce strategic rivalry between the two Asian giants and firm up their strategic influence in the region.
"There are lot of perceptions about border issue. So long as the two leaderships have strong political will we have good prospects for the resolution of the border issue," Huang said at a briefing to Indian media about Modi's visit which is expected to take place in the third week of next month.
Huang stated that progress has been made in recent Special Representatives (SR) talks held in New Delhi.
"We believe that the two SRs will continue to carry on this process according to the consensus reached by the two leaders," he said in reply to a question as to whether China is open for a resolution of the border dispute based on status quo.

Now that the Chinese economy is spiraling downward fast and it faces huge unemployment issues and consequent labor unrest things are starting to sink into China there is no country but India that can rescue it.....and so it is trying to position itself ......
It is China's old technique that when you know you opponent is powerful than make friends and talk sweet for that time and when time comes stab from behind......

Can you believe this nation ? It is like sleeping with most poisonous snake.

Even though China is praising Modi, it's army makes regular incursions in our territory. Let us not fall in the Hindi-Chini Bhai Bhai trap all over again.
