Providing an upbeat picture of the relations between the two militaries, which shared arduous and at times testing ties guarding the 3,488-km long Line of Actual Control (LAC), Defence spokesman Col Wu Qian said the just concluded joint counter terrorism drills in India �showed the determination� of the two sides to protect the regional stability besides fighting terrorism.

�For the China-India relations, military relationship is the important component of the overall relationship,� Col Wu told a media briefing here responding to questions on how the PLA views the relations with its Indian counterpart this year. �Thanks to the efforts of the two heads of the state, the military relationship is improving,� he said.

The military ties constituted important component of the two informal summits - Wuhan in 2018 and Chennai this year - between Prime Minister Modi and President Xi especially after the 73-day standoff at Doklam in 2017.

�We should carefully handle issues concerning each other�s core interests. We should properly manage and control problems that cannot be solved for the time being,� Xi said after his summit meeting with Modi in Chennai.

He also said both the countries should improve the level of military and security exchanges and cooperation. � PTI
