BEIJING, May 3 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese spokesman on Thursday expressed hope that China and India will continue to make joint efforts to maintain peace and stability in the border region of both countries.

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Liu Weimin made the remarks at a regular press briefing, while commenting on the report that Indian Minister of Defence A.K. Antony has testified in the Upper House of Parliament recently that Chinese helicopters had entered Indian air space twice in March.

Liu said, China has noted relevant reports, but the Chinese side needs to find out what the facts are.

China's position on the China-India border issue has not changed, and it hopes that both sides will make joint efforts to properly solve border dispute through negotiations and consultations, Liu added.

"Prior to this, (China) hopes both sides will continue to be committed to maintaining peace and stability in border region of the two countries," he said.
