外文标题：Regime change won't affect ties: China to Pakistan
BEIJING: China on Thursday assured Islamabad that a change of regime in Pakistan and Beijing's recent overtures towards India will not come in the way of their "all weather friendship". A Chinese minister said Pakistan continues to serve Beijing's strategic interests without actually mentioning its role as a bulwark in India-China relations.
At the same time, vice foreign minister Song Tao said China will offer India a basket of golden eggs consisting of direct investments, industrial loans and enhanced trade. It is offering to come up with a new shopping list to bump up two-way trade over the next two years by 50%. The purpose is to reach $100 billion in line with an earlier India-China agreement, which looks highly ambitious today.
"China-Pakistan relations have stood the test of time," said Song at a briefing to discuss premier Li Keqiang's visit to India, Pakistan, Switzerland and Germany starting with New Delhi on May 19. The two countries have had "mutually beneficial relationship" for decades, and political changes inside Pakistan and in the international landscape will not affect their "traditional friendship".
Song also made it clear, for the first time by any Chinese authority, that premier Li will meet Pakistan Muslim League(N) chief Nawaz Sharif, expected to form government in June, besides meeting president Asif Ali Zardari.
Speaking about India, Song said China will work hard with India to resolve the border dispute at "an early date". The insistence on early resolution is a new development after the Xi Jinping government took office and differs from the previous approach of "work in progress" towards border negotiations.
"China and India have historical border issues, but these are outweighed by our mutual interests and cooperation," said Song. The second ranked Chinese leader will also meet Indian businessmen in Mumbai.
"We have the wisdom and resourcefulness to properly manage differences, and we have the ability to prevent differences from affecting the overall growth of China-India relations," he said.
Apparently encouraged by the success of the China Development Bank to sign a $1.9 billion loan deal with Reliance Communications, the minister said his country plans to invest $500 billion in foreign destinations over the next five years, and India was welcome to make the most of the opportunity.
"With such momentum, $100 billion trade by 2015 is expected to be realised on schedule," said Chinese vice commerce minister Jiang Yaoping at the same briefing.
Chinese companies have completed projects in India worth $ 35.1 billion, with India emerging as one of the biggest destinations for project contracts for China by March this year.

China needs to enter India in a big way and luring us with very big investments. It is for us to study and decide as what to accept, how much to accept and how long we must accept etc and study well before act. Otherwise, we might fall in other pit or problems.

If Indian are fools, they will believe this.Why would China create problem for itself by propping up India against itself. Both live in the same neighborhood.

Yes, there will be no change in the relationship. It is business as usual in the secret rooms of China. We manipulate all nations. We are very respectful. No nation gets treatment better than others. Our plan is the same. The goal is the same. You will soon join with China in a great global Red state that assimilates all religions and all cultures. To be heralded in with our new serendipodous technology of course. Soon you will be much happier than you have been before. Maos photo will go global. On all walls:)

Two way trade goes up by 50% which they say is 100$ billion..this is mostly chinese imports to India..and they are investing 2 billion in Reliance! What sort of deal is this! And on top, border disputes..Hindi-chini bhai-bhai..Boycott china! That will create employment and wealth! Their economy is relies heavily on exports and is now slowing down..when we boycott their products..their money is gone..and then we take Tibet back!

Pinto$ replies to swapnil
No part in Tibet is ever claimed by India. Yes. I agree that lake Mansarovar has religious sentiments attached but it is never claimed by India officially. Only the claims that India presently have over chinese administered regions are AKSAI CHIN and the part of J&K (supposedly gifted to china by Pak). Apart from that India doesn't claim any territory under chinese rule !!! In fact it is China that claims Arunachal Pradesh as southern Tibet....

We in India too wants friendship and do not want to lose the grip of friendship from the people of China but the intrusion in Ladakh recently has shaken the confidence of the people of India and our FORCES KEPT ON THEIR TOES - the message perceived here appears that China wants to extend friendship with one hand and want to put a dagger to threaten us from the other hand - we hope the two Asian Giants come to terms to solve all differences including the border row ..

Getting Chinese loans and inviting Chinese companies to build infrastructure in India could be really a win win situation for both China and India. The excess capacity of China can be utilized in India and India will benefit from the cheap and expert Chinese infrastructure development.
