Be sensitive to India's core issues: PM tells China

By The Assam Tribune

Hanoi, Oct 29 (PTI): In the back of concerns over stapled visas being given by China to Kashmiris, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today asked it to be sensitive to India's "core issues" as he met Premier Wen Jiabao here, even as the two sides agreed to work their way to solutions to the "difficult" problems.

At the same time, the two leaders agreed that there was enough space in the world for both the countries to grow and they should cooperate and collaborate. In this regard, Wen will visit India by the end of this year, possibly in December, a step that was immediately welcomed by Singh at the meeting.

It was also decided at the 45-minute meeting that the Special Representatives of the two countries will meet by the end of next (rpt) next month to discuss "difficult" issues, including the boundary question.

IANS adds: "You have on many occasions issued an invitation to me to visit your country, and my preliminary information indicates that I will pay a visit to your country by the end of this year," Wen said in his introductory remarks while stressing that the two leaders should "discuss and reach a consensus on major aspects to lay a foundation for the visit".

Manmohan Singh responded on a similar note, pointing out that they had met 10 times in the last six years and each time had been a "very rewarding experience". "We are very keen that during the 60th year of establishment of diplomatic relations between our two countries, your excellency should find it possible to visit our country and I am very glad to know from you that the visit could take place by the end of this year," he said as flashbulbs popped and TV cameras whirred.
