Great ideas and civilizations cannot stay apart for long. over the course of history there may crop up some aberrations here and there in their ties. But it is very much in the nature of advanced civilizations to get back to an auto-correction mode sooner than later. This seems to have been the pattern of Sino-Indian relations throughout history. There has been a multi-faceted dialogue between the two civilizations since ancient times. Notwithstanding the friction in their relations on account of the 1962 war, this process has continued. Both nations have been known for their accommodation of divergent schools of thought. This reality finds its best manifestation in the fact that the two lands have remained absolutely insulated from any occasional waves of anti-Semitism in the world.

This brings me in total agreement with what Chinese Premier Li Keqiang has observed in a recent interview to an Indian news magazine: "Terrorism is a common enemy of mankind...It requires solidarity and stronger cooperation among the international community to eradicate terrorism and safeguard security and stability in the region and the world. China and India, having both suffered from the menace of terrorism, share common interests and face similar challenges in fighting terrorism. China stands ready to deepen counterterrorism cooperation with India to better safeguard the development and security interests of our two countries."
