U.S. President George W. Bush has stressed his government's commitment to cement constructive cooperative ties with China during his meeting with a Chinese delegation this week, said a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Thursday.
The Chinese delegation of senior public servants was led by Zhou Qiang, first secretary of the Chinese Communist Youth League and president of China Youth University for Political Sciences.
During the meeting on Monday at the White House, Bush spoke positively of President Hu Jintao's U.S. trip in April, and he said China is an important country with huge potential, according to spokesman Liu Jianchao.
The United States is committed to developing constructive cooperative ties with China and further strengthening the bilateral cooperation in military, energy, education and youth exchanges, Bush was quoted as saying.
China has noticed President Bush's comments, the spokesman said.
China is willing to join hands with the United States to implement the important consensus reached by the two state heads, and promote China-U.S. constructive cooperative ties of the 21st century in an all-around way, Liu said.
