Observing that China-India relations have gone beyond a bilateral scope and that the two countries have broad converging interests and face common challenges in Asia and elsewhere, Chinese envoy to India Luo Zhaohui has advocated the early signing of a friendship treaty by the two neighbours

New Delhi — The Chinese ambassador to India, Luo Zhaohui, has proposed a four-point agenda to strengthen India-China relations.

"My four-point vision for future China-India cooperation is — sign a Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation, negotiate a bilateral free trade agreement, enhance connectivity and work for early harvest on boundary issue," Chinese ambassador Luo Zhaohui said at the "Beyond Wuhan: How Far and Fast Can China-India Relations Go?" seminar in New Delhi today.

India should think of signing a treaty of friendship with China. We had already given the draft to India ten years ago, Lou Zhaohui added.
