Meanwhile, Chinese media reports have said that the choice of India as the first leg of Mr Li's maiden overseas trip as Premier had sent out a clear signal that the new leadership in Beijing accords high priority to enhancing ties with New Delhi.
The reports noted that both Chinese President Xi Jinping and Mr Li had, in recent statements, reaffirmed China's commitment to fostering stronger ties with India while effectively managing border problems and other thorny issues.
"Over the years, bilateral relations have withstood a host of tests, including the latest border spat. But the swift cooling-down once again shows that both nations are looking at the big picture of their ties, instead of being carried away by incidental matters.
"It is obvious that both sides want fewer hostilities and confrontations in their neighborhood and, with their primary focus on national development, need to seize the strategic growth opportunities facing them," Xinhua, the official Chinese news agency, said in a report.
