In addition, in view of the expanding trade and commerce and growing people-to-people contacts, the two sides also agreed to work towards simplifying visa procedures.

Noting that enhanced interaction in the military field was conducive to building mutual trust and confidence, they agreed to hold the next round of joint training exercises later this year and decided to increase exchanges between the Army, Navy and Air Force of the two countries.

As the Asia-Pacific region plays an increasingly important role in global affairs, the two sides agreed, the current priority of this region is to maintain regional peace and stability, promote regional common development, and establish an open, transparent, equal and inclusive framework of security and cooperation based on the observance of the basic principles of international law.

The two countries also reiterated their resolute opposition to terrorism in all its forms and manifestations and committed themselves to cooperate on counter-terrorism.

On the Afghanistan issue, the two sides agreed that it concerns regional security and stability, and reiterated their support for an "Afghan-led, Afghan-owned" reconciliation process.

Meanwhile, they reaffirmed their commitment to working with regional countries and the international community to help Afghanistan achieve its objective of peace, stability, independence and development at an early date.

Also, the two sides reaffirmed their commitment to promoting multilateral arms control, disarmament and non-proliferation processes, and their support for the complete prohibition and thorough destruction of all nuclear weapons.
