Indian youths are encouraged to visit China and expand exchanges, Chinese Ambassador to India Xu Feihong said on June 15 during an embassy event in New Delhi that featured a language proficiency awards ceremony and the unveiling of an exhibition related to late Indian scholar Rabindra Nath Tagore.

"The future of our two countries depends on the young people, and so does the future of our world. Today, all of you, from all over India, understand China through the window of Chinese, and promote exchanges and friendship between the two peoples through the bridge of language," Xu said while speaking at the India finals and award ceremony of the 2024 "Chinese Bridge" Chinese proficiency competition for foreign college and secondary school students.

"I'm convinced that the tradition of China-India people-to-people exchanges and cultural mutual learning over thousands of years will be passed down by you. And a new and more glorious chapter will be scripted."

And China seeks more sound and stable relations with India, Xu said. "I look forward to strengthening communication with the new Indian government and friends from all sectors of India, to enhance mutual understanding and trust, restore exchanges and cooperation in various fields."

The address came after the envoy earlier unveiled a photo exhibition that commemorated the centenary of renowned poet, writer, philosopher and educator Tagore's 1924 visit to China.

Xu said that stable bilateral relationship is in the interest of both countries and will contribute to regional and global peace and development.
