On April 6, 2010, the Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries (CPAFFC) held a reception in Beijing to mark the 60th anniversary of the establishment of China-India diplomatic relations. State Councilor Dai Bingguo attended the reception.

In his address, Chen Haosu, President of the CPAFFC, said China and India are traditional friendly neighbors linked by mountains and rivers. The two countries established a strategic cooperative partnership for peace and prosperity in 2005 and signed A Shared Vision for the 21st Century in 2008. The two countries have deepened their cooperation in the fields of trade, science and technology, energy, counter-terrorism and fight against transnational crimes, and people-to-people exchanges between the two countries have also been thriving.

Indian Foreign Minister Krishna said that India-China cooperation not only conforms to both countries’ interests, but is also conducive to the world. India will take the opportunity of the 60th anniversary of diplomatic ties to enhance cooperation, contacts and understanding between the two countries and their peoples.
