An Uncomfortable Wishing

We might have faced a situation like being in the receiving end of getting a unwanted wishes. Though we know the wishes was just formality and not full heartedly we don't have any other option other than just listening. Like this exactly happened to India when it got the wishes from the Chinese premier Wen Jiabao.

Here is the excerpt of Chinese premier Wen Jiabao interview talking about India's growing strength,

Friendship was the “mainstream of China-India relations,” he emphasised, pointing out that in more than 2,000 years of friendly ties, “times of unpleasant memories” lasted two to three years only.

In a rare gesture, the Chinese leader received a PTI correspondent Anil Joseph to bid him farewell on his posting back to India after an 11-year stint here.

“This is the first time for me to have a one-to-one meeting with a correspondent to bid farewell. That is why today I wish to speak from my heart, away from all those usual protocols,” he said.

Mr. Wen also spoke about growing ties with India, stressing that the development of the two countries “are each others’ opportunity rather than a threat.”

Looking forward to the expected visit of his Indian counterpart, Manmohan Singh, to China later this year, Mr. Wen indicated that a red carpet welcome awaited the Indian leader.

Describing the visit as a “big event,” the Premier said, “we are now making vigorous preparations for the visit to ensure that it will be a success.” Mr. Wen said, “Prime Minister Singh and I have said before that when the two of us shake hands, the eyes of the entire world are onus.

We wish the Indian people happiness and India prosperity. We also wish continued progress in the friendly relations and cooperation between China and India.
