Chinese and Indian border guards jointly celebrated New Year near the two countries’ border, according to Xinhua.
“The activity, held in the western part of the border area, was carried out in line with an agreement reached by the two sides earlier,” spokeswoman Hua Chunying was quoted as saying. “Both sides sent New Year's wishes to each other during the celebration, which enhanced exchanges and mutual trust between the countries' border guards.”
China is confident in maintaining long-term peace along the border, Hua said, noting the two sides have launched a series of cooperation and communication mechanisms in recent years.
China is willing to work with India to implement the important consensus reached by the leaders of the two countries to constantly improve and promote relations between the two frontier guards, Hua said.
