NEW DELHI (AP) -- India's new prime minister, Narendra Modi, met Monday with China's foreign minister for talks aimed at reviving trade and moving forward on economic partnership.

Both India and China have dismissed the idea that past tensions, particularly over an unresolved border dispute, should hold the Asian giants back from cooperating economically.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi visited Modi in New Delhi on Monday, after meeting for three hours with his Indian counterpart on Sunday.

The Indian foreign ministry said in a statement the two sides shared "an understanding that respect for the sensitivities and aspirations of each other was an essential for expansion of bilateral relations."
