New Delhi: As world leaders congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his NDA winning a third consecutive term of five years in the just-concluded parliamentary elections, although with diminished strength, China remarked that it is “ready to work” with India.

On Wednesday, PM Modi formally submitted his Cabinet’s resignation to President Draupadi Murmu, who asked him to continue until the next government takes office. He is expected to be sworn in again on June 8.

“China is ready to work with India to promote the healthy and stable development of relations between the two countries, in the fundamental interests of the two countries and peoples, with an eye to the big picture and a view to the future,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning told a regular press conference in Beijing on Wednesday.

Several world leaders also congratulated PM Narendra Modi on winning a historic third term after his party and its allies bagged a victory in the Lok Sabha elections 2024.

Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni said PM Modi’s victory makes it certain that the two leaders will continue to work together to strengthen India-Italy ties.

“Congratulations to @narendramodi on the new election victory and my warmest wishes for good work. We will certainly continue to work together to strengthen the friendship that unites Italy and India and consolidate cooperation on the various issues that bind us, for the well-being of our nations and our people,” said Meloni.

Sri Lanka’s President Ranil Wickremesinghe congratulated PM Modi and the BJP and said his country looks forward to strengthening the bilateral ties.

“I extend my warmest felicitations to the @BJP4India-led NDA on its victory, demonstrating the confidence of the Indian people in the progress and prosperity under the leadership of PM @narendramodi. As the closest neighbor Sri Lanka looks forward to further strengthening the partnership with India,” he said.

The Maldivian President, Mohamed Muizzu, said he looks forward to working together with the Modi government.

“Congratulations to Prime Minister @narendramodi, and the BJP and BJP-led NDA, on the success in the 2024 Indian General Election, for the third consecutive term. I look forward to working together to advance our shared interests in pursuit of shared prosperity and stability for our two countries,” said Muizzu.

Other leaders sending in similar messages included Pravind Kumar Jugnauth (Mauritius), Tshering Tobgay (Bhutan), Prachanda (Nepal), Mahinda Rajapakse, Sarath Fonseca, and Sajith Premadasa (Sri Lanka), Mohamed Nasheed and Abdulla Shahid (The Maldives), Andrew Holness (Jamaica), and others.
