China and the United States signed a memorandum of understanding on furthering educational cooperation on Thursday. Wen expressed his hope that the two sides would implement the memorandum of understanding.
Spellings vowed to work with her Chinese counterpart to put the memorandum of understanding into practice in order to push forward the educational exchanges.
