During our recent discussions on the future development of trade between the People`s Republic of China and India, it was agreed that the Government of the People`s Republic of China would encourage Chinese state trading companies to establish and strengthen contacts with the State Trading Corporation of India in commodities processed by the State Trading Corporation of India. I should be grateful if you would confirm that the above correctly explains the agreement that has been reached with us. India has made a consistent regional and unilateral commitment in all regions to strengthen economic cohesion. These agreements complement wto-based negotiations. These agreements aim to create trade and diversify trade, as well as to strengthen political relations. .
