It is evident from the increase in visits by top diplomats from both countries, including the low-key one by NSA Ajit Doval last week.
"This year, under the guidance of the two leaders, China-India relations have been developing with a sound momentum. We have seen close exchanges at all levels and new progress in all around-cooperation," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said.
"Just like you said, member of the political bureau Yang Jiechi met the Indian National Security Advisor Doval in Shanghai and also the 11th Joint Economic Group meeting and the 5th Strategic Economic Dialogue were held successfully."
Hua was responding to a question by the Chinese media about the warmth in India-China ties.
"Officials from the two foreign ministers also met. The two sides held working mechanism meeting on border affairs and cross border rivers. This interaction show that China and India share a wide range of common interests and our bilateral cooperation holds great potential.
"China attaches great importance to developing relations with India and we would like to work together to implement the consensus reached by leaders, stick to the right path of the bilateral ties, accumulate more positive energy, explore new areas for cooperation and ensure sound and steady development of bilateral ties," Hua added.
