Xiamen: Chinese President Xi Jinping told Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi that China is prepared to work with India to seek guidance from the five principles of Panchsheel.

The Chinese President said, "A healthy and stable China-India relationship serves the interests of people in both countries."

 

Xi said, "India and China are each other's major neighbours, we are also two of the world's largest and emerging countries." 

Both the leaders are holding the first bilateral meeting at Xiamen in China where leaders of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa have congregated for the 9th annual BRICS summit.
