Minister for Foreign Affairs

People’s Republic of China




On the occasion of the 60th Anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between India and China, I convey greetings and best wishes to you and the Government of the People’s Republic of China.

India and China are ancient civilizations. Today, we are rapidly developing countries which share the objective of improving the living standards of our people. In recent times, we have emerged as two of the fastest growing economies in the world. We are also important partners in trade and investment. We coordinate closely on global issues including climate change, international economic matters and world trade negotiations.

India and China have embarked on a Strategic and Cooperative Partnership which is a factor contributing to stability in Asia and the world. Our countries also have a Shared Vision for the 21st Century which provides the framework for our continued cooperation in the coming years.

On this important occasion, we reiterate our resolve to work closely with China for the peace and prosperity of our region and the globe. I look forward to working with you in realising this goal.

Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.

S. M. Krishna
