STORY: Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, gave the message of everlasting friendship between Indian and China as he addressed children during his visit to a school in India’s capital New Delhi on Wednesday (December 15).
“I think not only are the Chinese people friendly and hospitable. I have been accorded gracious hospitality since my colleagues and I arrived in your country. I believe we can do that because we are friends, friends forever,” said Jiabao.
Premier Jiabao arrived in New Delhi early on Wednesday on a three-day visit to boost trade and soothe tensions between the two fastest-growing major economies in the world.
Speaking at the school, Jiabao expressed that he was deeply touched as the Indian children like the Chinese addressed him as Grandpa Wen.
Interestingly Chinese students popularly call Jiabao as Grandpa Wen.
He said friendship and cooperation between India and China could have a global impact.
“The students in China have such a believe that with friendship and cooperation between our two countries, whose combined population is 2.5 billion it will represent the revitalisation of Asia and we will also have a global impact,” said Jiabao.
Grandpa Wen also taught calligraphy to students and wrote “India China friendship forever” in Mandarin on white board.
Wen’s visit is the first by a Chinese premier in five years.
Following visits by U.S. President Barack Obama and French President Nicholas Sarkozy, Wen has brought with him more than 400 business leaders, underscoring the growing commercial ties of the two countries which, between them, house more than a third of the world’s population.
The two countries, one-time rivals who went to war in 1962, are now entwined by their booming trade relationship and rising global clout. Both have stood together to resist Western demands in world trade and climate change talks.
Closer economic ties are driving much of the goodwill. China is India’s largest trade partner and bilateral flows are expected to hit $60 billion in this fiscal year ending March 2011, though the trade is skewed heavily in China’s favour.
After his visit to New Delhi, Wen then travels to Pakistan, India’s nuclear-armed rival, for another two days.
