On April 11, 2005, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh signed an historic border agreement that ended nearly four decades of tense political relations stemming from the Sino-Indian War of 1962. The document agreed upon a peaceful resolution of a final border demarcation between the two countries, and also called for future "strategic partnership" between the nations. Although China has recently opposed India's proposed inclusion in the UN Security Council, recent years have seen more cooperation between the two nations including a joint pact to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
