China and India will enhance communication and handle border issue properly to create favorable conditions for border negotiation, foreign spokeswoman Hua Chunying said on Thursday.

The two sides held their ninth meeting as part of the China-India border issue discussion and coordination on Tuesday and Wednesday in New Delhi. Ms Hua told a Beijing news conference the talks were under "friendly, candid and pragmatic" atmosphere.

During the meeting, attended by diplomatic, defense and public security authorities, both sides made positive comments towards the China-India border situation in the past year, she said.

The two countries will implement relevant measures to boost mutual trust for the important high-level exchanges in the near future, she said.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will attend the 11th G20 summit held in Hangzhou, East China's Zhejiang province from Sunday to Monday, during which he is going to talk with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

In August, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in New Delhi that both sides agreed to firmly support each other and jointly well host the G20 Hangzhou Summit and the Goa meeting of BRICS leaders to be held in October.
