India, China reach consensus to break up-down cycle in bilateral ties: Chinese envoy Luo

New Delhi, May 22: Luo Zhaohui, China’s envoy to India, has on Tuesday said disputes between the two strong neighbour economies are as same as issues between two brothers of a family under one roof.

According to ANI news reports, the Chinese envoy said New Delhi and Beijing have reached an agreement to make bilateral cooperations stable, strong, and break the cycle of lows and highs in India-China relations.

On the sidelines of a conference hosted by the Chinese embassy, while interacting with ANI, Luo stated, “India-China ties are important for both the countries. We already reached a consensus under the leadership of both sides. We now maintain that China-India relationship will continue to move in a healthy and stable direction.”

Luo said 2020 will mark the 70th anniversary of China-India bilateral relations, adding, “So we have a consensus reached with the Indian government on how to make this relation stable and break up and down circle.”

In June 2017, the Doklam standoff between China and India resulted in a hike in tensions between two neighbouring nations, during which Luo had played a vital role in de-escalating the tensions.

While addressing the unresolved border issue, the envoy stated it is vital to maintain tranquillity and peace, and “border disputes are left over by history”.

Emphasizing over the importance of border trade, he stated he just returned from Gangtok to Nathula to oversea India-China border trade.

In Nathula pass, the border trade is totally in favour of the Indian side and it also makes the lives of the people along the border area better, Luo added.
