BEIJING - Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Thursday that China and India are by nature strategic partners, while talking to his Indian counterpart Salman Khurshid.

Wang said the bilateral relationship has more and more global significance, with great potential of cooperation and vast space of development.

Both sides are preparing for exchange of high-level visits, which signals a big opportunity for the two countries to push forward their relationship, Wang said.

China is willing to make concerted efforts with India, seize the opportunity and promote the strategic cooperative partnership to a new level, Wang said.

China is also willing to work with India to advance borders negotiations to seek a fair and reasonable solution, Wang said, adding that China wishes to jointly maintain peace and tranquility along the borders before a settlement.

Khurshid said both India and China are playing increasingly important roles in international affairs. Strengthening the bilateral cooperation not only meets fundamental interests of both sides, but also helps form a century of Asia.

Khurshid said he wishes the two countries would take the opportunity of the exchange of high-level visits to expand cooperation in various aspects.
