In their talks, Wen said the relationship between China and India has experienced an unusual course of development over the past 60 years. However, friendly cooperation has always been the main stream, which is not only in the interest of both countries and peoples, but also helpful for peace and development of the region and the world at large.

The Chinese premier, who arrived here Wednesday for his second official visit to India following the trip in 2005, pointed out that this year marked the 60th anniversary of the establishment of China-India diplomatic ties.

He said he is satisfied with the progress of bilateral relations over the years and looks forward to the future.

The two countries should grasp the historical opportunity to boost political and strategic mutual trust and move forward the China-India relations along the track of lasting friendship, mutually beneficial cooperation and common development, Wen added.

"I hope my current visit is the one to carry on the past and open a way for future, which will further enhance our win-win cooperation," Wen said.

Singh said that high-level exchanges between China and India have become closer, and political and strategic mutual trust has continuously improved.

He said that the comprehensive cooperation in all fields has been enhanced ever since the two countries established a strategic and cooperative partnership for peace and prosperity five years ago.

At present, the two countries are at a crucial stage of development, Singh said.

He said the enhancement of communications and cooperation was not only conducive to the development of India and China, but also will push forward the rejuvenation of Asia and promote world peace and development.

"I believe the visit of Premier Wen will give a new impetus to bilateral relations," Singh said.
