On the afternoon of April 21, 2016, Premier Li Keqiang met at Ziguangge of Zhongnanhai with Indian Special Representative on the China-India Boundary Question and National Security Adviser Ajit Doval of India, who was in China to attend the 19th Special Representatives' Meeting on China-India Boundary Question. .

Li Keqiang expressed that since the launch of Special Representatives' Meeting on China-India Boundary Question, it has played a constructive role in promoting mutual trust and expanding consensus between the two sides. The two countries should proceed from the general situation of bilateral relations, and continue to properly solve boundary question through diplomatic channels and peaceful manners. Before finding a fair, reasonable and mutually acceptable solution, both sides should well control disputes, and jointly contribute to safeguarding peace and tranquility in boundary regions, which will provide stable expectation for both countries to deeply enhance economic and trade cooperation.

Li Keqiang pointed out that at present, the recovery of the world economy is sluggish and the geopolitical turbulences are more prominent. China and India, as the two largest emerging economies, have maintained a medium-high economic growth rate, which is an inspiration to the world and a driver to Asia. It is hoped that both sides can treasure and well safeguard the momentum of sound development of bilateral relations, give full play to complementary economic advantages, conduct multi-field practical cooperation, and carry out close communication and coordination in international and regional affairs, so as to send a positive signal to the world that China and India will work hand in hand to safeguard peace and stability and promote common development.

Ajit Doval said India-China relations have achieved positive progress. The two countries not only face tough challenges in developing economies but also share huge opportunities for conducting cooperation. India is willing to strengthen high-level exchanges with China, deepen cooperation in various fields such as economy and security, and properly deal with the boundary question, so as to promote bilateral relations to achieve greater development.
