原文标题：India finds no mention in Chinese foreign minister’s annual press meet
BEIJING: China’s outgoing foreign minister Yang Jeichi on Saturday spent two hours in his annual press conference discussing China’s relations with different countries but there was no mention of the country’s biggest neighbour India.
Yang was speaking at his yearly press briefing, which is used to send out foreign policy signals. Not mentioning an important neighbor like India, which is China’s partner in espousing third world causes in environment debates, at the World Trade Organization and in BRICS is a deliberate policy signal, region observers said.
Yang used a Chinese proverb to indirectly blame China’s neighbors for the instability in the region without mentioning any country. “The tree prefers calm but the wind refuses to subside,” he said. But there was an improvement in the situation and China’s neighbourhood was becoming increasingly stable, he said while asserting, “A good neighbour is an invaluable treasure.”
Communist Party leader Xi Jinping, who will soon become the country’s president, is due to attend the BRICS meeting in Durban and meet Indian leaders later this month. Yang discussed the rising importance of BRICS without discussing India in particular.
Yang, who spent six years as foreign minister, discussed “neighbouring countries” and dealt on Beijing’s relationship with four of its neighbours—Russia, Japan, South Korea and North Korea besides Indonesia.
He also disclosed an interesting figure saying China’s trade with its neighbours including Russia reached 1.2 trillion yuan ($193 billion), which is higher than the country’s combined trade with the US and Europe in 2012. This was unimaginable even a few years back, he said.

What’s the point for this news? The conference only lasted for 2 hours, and China has many important things to mention. China would have mentioned India if the conference had lasted longer than that.

India is only a “geographic term”, not really a nation. It falls under a single government, but in reality it’s just a whole bunch of individual cultures melted in to one by the brits.

Correction: the trade volume between China and its neighboring countries was 1.2 trillion USD not “yuan”. China’s trade with USA is more than 400 billion USD.

Can’t believe our trusted news media can make such a simple mistake. It goes to show that we don’t even try at all to make our reported information as accurate as possible.
