50 years after war, China, India are partners: Beijing

BEIJING -- Beijing stressed Wednesday that India and China were "partners instead of rivals" with common interests in development, striking a conciliatory note on the 50th anniversary of a war between the neighbors.

Badly equipped Indian troops were humiliated in the four-week war along the Himalayan frontier which began in October 1962, with Chinese forces pouring through the mountains and advancing as far as the plains of Assam.

China then withdrew to the current border but it still claims much of the remote Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh, and the dispute consistently sours efforts to improve ties between the regional rivals.

"The current road has undergone deep and profound changes," China's foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei said while remarking on the war's anniversary.
