China's top legislator Wu Bangguo met Monday with President of the Thai National Assembly Chai Chidchob, pledging to further advance parliamentary exchanges between the two countries.

China and Thailand have seen stable and healthy development of bilateral ties in the past years in the spirit of mutual respect and trust, non-interference with internal affairs, and addressing each other's core interests, said Wu, chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, China's top legislature.

China regards Thailand as its close friend and trustable partner and will work with Thailand to lift bilateral ties to a new level, said Wu.

Chai, also Speaker of the Thai House of Representatives or the Lower House, pays an official goodwill visit to China from Jan. 9 to Jan. 16, the first such visit since he assumed office in May, 2008.

Chai expressed his hope that the parliaments of the two countries could learn from each other on such issues as legislature and supervision in a bid to facilitate Thailand-China ties.
