    China on Tuesday strongly pitched for better understanding and widening of ties with India, asserting that it was not only important for these two countries but also for the region.

    There is a need for greater interaction between people from all walks of life, especially journalists for better understanding of how the government and systems function in respective countries, Cai Mingzhao, Chinese Minister of the State Council Information Office, said during a visit to PTI headquarters in New Delhi.

    The minister, who was accompanied by Chinese Ambassador to India Wei Wei and other senior officials of his ministry and embassy, talked to senior PTI editors on several media- related issues, including enhanced cooperation between Chinese official news agency Xinhua and the Indian news agency.

    The minister, who inaugurated the first India-China media forum along with External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid on Monday, also said that India and China’s relationship has great potential for growth which should be utilised through enhanced interactions.

    He also advocated the dependence on “authentic” sources while reporting big events happening in China instead of depending on western media, which may have difference in their perception while doing the reportage of incidents there.

    During the Forum meeting on Monday, he had also proposed that the media forum become an institutionalised platform for regular exchanges between the media persons of the two sides and should be held alternatively in India and China.

    US is trying to get a foothold in which area?
    East asia? They have been there for 60 years!
    Sub-continent? It is India's "backyard", not China's.

    A change in their policy towards india?
    Just some ordinary weapon sales, that is all!
    The fact is US can't give what India is asking: dominance in Indian Ocean unless they are kicked out from eastern asia by China. But that is not going to happend in 20 years.

    I sincerely hope that one day India, China and even Pakistan have true friendship. After all, Pakistan is our brother country. I wish your "hardline" minister really walks the talk. But for that to happen, there should be a paradigm shift in the policy making of either country.

    Agreed - there is no fundamental geopolitical reason why China and India should be at odds.

    Everytime a Chinese diplomat comes to India and says something nice - watch out.

    3 days later you will find about 200 Chinese soldiers camping 50 miles inside Indian territory in the North-east.
    This happens almost like clockwork.

    Indians have learnt that the only thing good about Documents signed by Chinese diplomats promoting friendship and cooperation is that you can wipe your ass with it.

    The border is in dispute. From the Chinese POV - ever since 1949, and even through 1962 - Indian troops are occupying tens of thousands of sq km of Chinese territory. Even that perception is the case in Beijing, it doesn't stop China from trying to reach out to India, even after Nehru's disastrously rude 'Forward Policy' - and thankfully, the India side is mature enough to reciprocate.

    China borders 14 countries by land. It has already solved all of its active border disputes with 12 of them. The only remaining countries are India, and Bhutan - there because India won't let Bhutan directly negotiate with China on any issue at all. China knows how to mix diplomacy and force to get real, lasting results. India should learn.

    From 1949, there is one Chinese point of view. From 1956, another Chinese point of view. From 1959, yet another. After 1962, another point of view. 1967, 1987 etc etc, Chinese point of view changes every 5 years. One can negotiate with a country like China when either they are powerful to make China oblige or weak enough to give away the land. If neither fits, one should be stupid enough to seal a border deal with China, ofcourse by giving away land. India can learn diplomacy from China later. China should first learn to keep their claim maps unexpanded. Heck you don't even have a finalized claim map till date which will not expand. And India is neither powerful than China, nor too weak to submit infront of China. Unlike Japan, India can be stupid to let China nibble away land. Bhutan knows what happened to bigger Tibet. And that's why to protect itself from China, Bhutan came to India. Get out of the foolish thought that India won't let Bhutan. If we don't let our neighbors to do what they want, we would have showed Srilanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh their place a long time back. But fortunately or unfortunately we are not a bullying country like China.

    You dont seem to know even the geopolitical problems of your own country. You have problems with vietnam, japan, both koreas and taiwan apart from forcibly occupying tibet. Pls take your history and political classes first.

    I think it's his history and political classes which shape t_co's point of view, which is strictly based on the party doctrine..

    Vietnam's land border with China has been solved. North Korea acceded to China's border interpretation in the mid-90s, when the country faced starvation without Chinese aid. Neither South Korea nor Japan nor Taiwan border China by land. And Tibet is Chinese territory, as far as China and the international community is concerned.

    Please take your history and political classes first.

    It seems that the Chinese Govt is fearful of the media, be it the western media or the Indian media.

    That is why the Indian media has been given the attention by appealing to them.

    Not surprising, given that every time the Chinese have tried some underhand dealings, they have been exposed, which has not only given China a bad image around the world, but also have raised the hackles of Indians. No longer Indians take the Chinese at face value or their falsehood of wanting to be friends.

    Fiends would be more appropriate.

    What does 'authentic' source mean?

    The CCP and its parrots?

    The Chinese people, by and large, are friendly, but it is a different case with the Chinese Govt and the Communists.
