font size    

China and Kazakhstan issued their bilateral cooperation strategy for the 21st century and a blueprint for economic cooperation in Beijing on Wednesday afternoon.

The two sides also signed 11 cooperation agreements covering trade, energy, science and technology, culture and education.

The documents were signed after Chinese president Hu Jintao held talks with his visiting Kazakh counterpart Nursultan Nazarbayev.

The two leaders agreed that China-Kazakhstan cooperation has developed to a "very high level". Bilateral relations are a priority in the respective foreign policies of the two nations, they said.

China appreciates Kazakhstan's support on the Taiwan issue and in the fight against terrorism and will back Kazakhstan's efforts to promote economic development, social stability and national unity, Hu noted.

In a 13-page document "China-Kazakhstan Cooperation Strategy for the 21st Century", the two sides highlighted bilateral cooperation in politics, the economy, international cooperation, security, culture and international affairs.

The 11 agreements include an outline agreement on oil pipeline construction and a framework agreement for Chinese funding worth 292.8 million U.S. dollars.

Acknowledging that bilateral cooperation has progressed rapidly since the two countries forged diplomatic relations 15 years ago, the two presidents expressed their willingness to further enhance the strategic partnership.

Kazakhstan is willing to work closely with China in the fields of trade, energy, infrastructure construction, high technology and culture,Nazarbayev said, vowing to crack down harder on the three evil forces of terrorism, extremism and separatism.

Nazarbayev also reiterated Kazakhstan's continued adherence to the one-China policy.

Nazarbayev, who arrived in China on Tuesday as Hu's guest, will give a speech at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), a Chinese government think-tank.

It is Nazarbayev's first visit to China since he won re-election last December.
