Regarding your second question, I'm not aware of the details of what happened along the China-India border recently as you mentioned. China's position on the China-India boundary issue remains consistent and clear-cut. The Chinese government has never recognized the so-called "Arunachal Pradesh". China and India are now in negotiation and consultation for proper settlement of the boundary issue, seeking a fair and reasonable solution acceptable to both sides. Before that is achieved, we hope India will conform to the treaties and agreements reached between the two sides, respect and abide by the Line of Actual Control, stop meaningless playing up and work with China to uphold peace and tranquility in the border areas.
As to your first question, on April 6, Vice Foreign Minister Kong Xuanyou held consultations with Indian Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale in New Delhi. We have released information on that. You mentioned that there may be more interactions between China and India recently. I shall say China-India relations have maintained the momentum for development recently with close exchanges at various levels, so it's not surprising if that happens, and China will issue relevant information in due course.
Q: As we understand, Pakistani Prime Minister visited Afghanistan on April 6, and the two sides reached many consensuses in political, economic and security fields. What's your comment?
A: Pakistani Prime Minister Abbasi's visit to Afghanistan constitutes an important step forward by the two countries towards the improvement of their relations, showcasing their sincere will for and firm confidence in dialogue and cooperation.
We noted that the two countries reached many consensuses, including on the Afghanistan-Pakistan Action Plan for Peace and Solidarity (APAPPS), advancing the Afghan reconciliation process and enhancing regional connectivity, etc. China highly commends and firmly supports this and believes it will be conducive to creating enabling environment for early realization of peace in Afghanistan and upholding peace and development of the two countries and this region.
