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.
