Krishna said both India and China are eager to have cordial and friendly ties. The statements came days after his talks with Chinese counterpart Yang Jiechi here.
Speaking to reporters here, Krishna said, "China wants to have cordial relations with India and India would like to have very friendly relations with China. The effort is to take the relation to being one of partnership."
He also said that China is not building any dam on Brahmaputra river, reports of which had raised concerns in India.
Replying to a question, Krishna said, "There is no time frame for resolution of the boundary issue with China and that the special representatives know what they are doing."
"I would like to assert that India-China border is one of the most peaceful and tranquil borders," he added.
