Chinese President Hu Jintao highlighted his country's cooperation with Jordan in a meeting with Jordanian King Abdullah II Bin Al-Hussein on Wednesday.

The king, who is on a two-day visit to China, is attending the Beijing 2008 Paralympics closing ceremony on Wednesday night in the National Stadium, or the Bird's Nest, in north Beijing.

President Hu said China highly values its cooperation with Jordan and hopes to deepen such cooperation through intensified efforts.

Hu said leaders of both countries shall maintain communication on important issues in the bilateral relations, while the two countries shall also take care of each other's core interests and critical concerns.

China appreciates Jordan's long-time adherence to the one-China policy, and will continue to support Jordan's efforts to safeguard national stability, promote economic and social progress, and seek a bigger role in regional and international affairs, Hu said.

China will actively push for practical cooperation with Jordan in areas like resources development, and advance its economic and trade relations with Jordan in an all-round and in-depth manner, he added.

Hu also took the opportunity to thank the Jordanian government and people for their support to the Beijing Olympics and Paralympics, as well as their assistance to China when the country was hit by a major earthquake in May.

The Jordanian king told Hu that the Chinese government and people have impressed the world with their successful hosting of the two Games.

Jordan will steadfastly follow the one-China policy, and be firmly committed to the development of a strategic cooperative relationship with China, said the king.

The two countries shall strengthen their exchanges and cooperation in such fields as resources development, infrastructure construction, trade, science and technology, culture, and human resources development, he noted.

China is playing an important role in the Middle East and Africa, and Jordan welcomes and supports China to continue to play a constructive role in the region, he added.

Following their talks, the two leaders attended the signing ceremony of documents regarding bilateral cooperation on economic, agricultural technologies and resources development.
