"We are now trying to seek a solution through negotiation that is acceptable to both sides", Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said.

"You must be very clear that boundary of India China border area has not been totally delimited and we have disputes in the eastern section of the boundary". The two countries have made a decision to seek synergy between India's "Act East" Policy and Japan's "Expanded Partnership for Quality Infrastructure", by closely coordinating, bilaterally and with other partners, for better regional integration and improved connectivity as well as industrial networks based on principles of mutual consultation and trust.

China on Wednesday evinced interest in reviving its proposal to build high speed railway projects in India which has chosen Japan as a partner for the country's first such venture.

According to strategic affairs expert Brahma Chellaney, since Trump has effectively given China a "free pass" on how to act on South China Sea, India and Japan are in a more hard position to address the issue.

About the India-Japan joint statement, Hua said, "The statement mentioned resolving disputes through negotiation and dialogue. Under such circumstances, various parties should respect such aspects and any third party should not be involved in our efforts to resolve the disputes".
