Senior military officials of China and Senegal said Thursday they would enhance cooperation between the two armed forces.

China and Senegal had cooperated beneficially since the resumption of diplomatic ties in 2005, said Chinese Defense Minister Liang Guanglie in a meeting in Beijing with Abdoulaye Fall, visiting Chief of General Staff of the Armed Forces of Senegal.

Liang appreciated Senegal's support for China on reunification and major international issues.

China and Senegal had developed sound military relations and China was willing to work with Senegal to advance friendly cooperation, Liang said.

The armed forces in both countries shared similarities in their self-development and Senegal hoped to enhance understanding and trust through more communication and cooperation with the Chinese military, Fall said.

Ahead of his meeting with Liang, Fall had discussions with Chen Bingde, Chief of the General Staff of China's People's Liberation Army.
