India attaches great importance to its friendship with China and looks forward to further developing political, economic and trade relations and humanities exchanges to benefit the two peoples."

In his note to President Xi, Russian President Vladimir Putin said, "On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China, I would like to extend my warmest congratulations. In the past 70 years, China has made remarkable achievements. China enjoys its deserved place on the international stage and plays an important role in solving major global problems," CCTV reported on Tuesday.

"Russia and China are mutually irreplaceable strategic partners. I highly value our friendship and would like to continue to work closely with you to benefit the people of Russia and China," Putin said in the message.

US President Donald Trump tweeted on Tuesday, saying: "Congratulations to President Xi and the Chinese people on the 70th Anniversary of the People's Republic of China!"

I look forward to working with you to push bilateral cooperation to a new level and jointly revitalize multilateralism."

Kim Jong-un, the top leader of the North Korea, said that in the past 70 years, the history of China's great struggle has clearly demonstrated that socialism is the most correct and inevitable choice for the Chinese people, and that the leadership of the Communist Party of China is the fundamental guarantee for the Chinese people to win, CCTV reported.
