NEW DELHI Apr 11, 2005 � India and China agreed Monday to form a “strategic partnership,” creating a diplomatic bond between Asia’s two emerging powers that would tie together nearly one-third of the world’s population.

The agreement, announced during a South Asia tour by Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, reflects a major shift in relations between the two nuclear countries, whose ties have long been defined by mutual suspicion. It also is another step in a charm offensive by Beijing, which is trying to build ties with its neighbors and ensure regional stability for economic growth.
