His Excellency Shri Somanahalli Mallaiah Krishna

Minister of External Affairs of the Republic of India

New Delhi


On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the People's Republic of China and the Republic of India, I wish to extend warm congratulations and best wishes to you.

India was one of the first countries to establish diplomatic relations with the PRC. Since the establishment of diplomatic ties 60 years ago, China-India relations have continued to grow under the guidance of the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence. China and India have conducted fruitful exchanges and cooperation in all fields and maintained sound coordination and collaboration in international and regional affairs, which have brought real benefits to our two countries and peoples. I will work with you to enhance our mutual understanding, trust and cooperation and advance the China-India strategic and cooperative partnership for peace and prosperity.

May China-India friendship and cooperation grow from strength to strength.


Yang Jiechi

Minister of Foreign Affairs of

The People's Republic of China
