Welcoming Modi's remarks at a media briefing, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Hua Chunying said, "We have noted the positive remarks made by Prime Minister Modi on China-India relations. We highly appreciate such kind of positive remarks."
"The two sides agreed to adopt a mature and wise way to properly handle differences," she said.
"China is willing to work with the Indian side to follow the guidance of this consensus to maintain the positive momentum of the development of bilateral relations, to promote mutually beneficial cooperation, properly handle differences, maintain peace tranquillity along the border areas and thus move forward the China-India relations," she said.

One can choose friends but not neighbors . India's pragmatic approach being approved by Chinese . The main hurdle is sorting and setting of border issues which then can pave way for confidence building measures .
