HANGZHOU: China is willing to work with India to maintain their "hard-won sound" ties and further boost bilateral cooperation, President Xi Jinping told Prime Minister Narendra Modi here on Sunday as the two leaders held talks amid differences over a raft of issues.
"China is willing to work with India to maintain their hard-won sound relations and further advance their cooperation", state-run Chinese Xinhua news agency quoted Xi as saying during their half an hour meeting, their second in less than three months.
The two leaders met before they attended the BRICS leaders meeting held ahead of the G20 summit here.
Xi's comments came in the backdrop of a raft of differences between the two countries including listing of Pakistan-based terrorist organisations in the UN, China stalling India's membership at the elite Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) and the USD 46 billion China-Pakistan Corridor being built through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).
The two leaders had last met on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Summit in June in Tashkent and are again set to meet in Goa next month on the sidelines of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) summit.

China has acknowledged the strategic importance of strong diplomatic ties with India, as both are leaders in the South East Asia region
Modi seemed pale in front of Xi
Narendra Modi is an action oriented Prime Minister. Action breeds confidence and courage. It will help India to attain a prestigious position in the comity of great nations.
India should not believe Chinese and should work in its interest.
Off course Hard-won trust. How could we trust the chinese,
India should take the words of Chinese President with a pinch of salt
China is an opportunistic nation. India can have a one-to-one relation with it but not more than that.
one can trust an injured snake more than the chinese
India has to be causes to deal with China.Only way out is to become equally strong and create top class infrastructure
