India's Modi: Border peace needed to realise China ties

NEW DELHI, Sept 18 (Reuters) - Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday that peace on the border with China was vital to developing relations, as a standoff between troops on their disputed border overshadowed a visit by President Xi Jinping.

"There should be peace in our relations and in the borders. If this happense we can realise the true potential of our relations," Modi told a joint news conference with Xi, shortly after reports that soldiers on both sides had pulled back.
