“This could mean obtaining defensive capabilities and other supportive measures, or securing understanding of our policies and procedures from the international community, in managing or resolving the most dangerous situations,” he added.

Wang’s surprise arrival came hours after New Delhi issued a second statement on Beijing’s association with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in Islamabad, where the Chinese foreign minister was a guest.

In a statement, Wang said China and India should work together to promote peace and stability around the world.

“The two sides should … put the differences on the boundary issue in an appropriate position in bilateral relations, and adhere to the correct development direction of bilateral relations,” he said.

“China does not pursue the so-called “unipolar Asia” and respects India’s traditional role in the region. The whole world will pay attention when China and India work hand in hand.”

“Countries and governments that associate themselves with such exercises should be aware of the impact on their reputation,” a spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
