BEIJING - Chinese State Councilor Dai Bingguo said Monday that bilateral ties between China and India should not be affected by "noise," calling for further cooperation for common development.

Dai made the remarks as he held talks with India's National Security Advisor Shiv Shankar Menon in Beijing.

The two sides should have a clear idea about some parties' intentions of undermining bilateral ties. They should also remember that there is more consensus than dispute, and more cooperation than competition, between China and India, said the state councilor.

As advocates of the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence, both China and India have sufficient wisdom and capabilities to handle bilateral ties, make more efforts for mutual benefit and prevent "noise" from diverting friendly cooperation and common development, he added.

Every step forward in the two countries' development as well as bilateral ties will contribute to the peace, security and cooperation in the entire world, Dai said.
