India and China have established a Strategic and Cooperative Partnership
based on the principles of Panchsheel, equality and mutual sensitivity
to each other`s concerns. India`s relations with other countries stand
on their own footing and are independent of the relations of those
countries with third countries. Government keeps a constant watch on all
developments having a bearing on India`s interests and security and
takes all necessary measures to protect these.
This information was given by Defence Minister Shri AK Antony in a
written reply to Shri Yogi Adityanath in Lok Sabha today.
