Chinese Defense Minister Liang Guanglie met with Timor-Leste's Secretary of State for Defense, Julio Tomas Pinto, in Beijing on Tuesday.

Liang said China will make joint efforts with Timor-Leste to push forward bilateral military exchanges and cooperation.

In recent years, bilateral cooperation had been carried out in areas including politics, economy and trade, energy, public health and military, and the two armed forces also conducted friendly cooperation through personnel training and exchange visits, Liang said.

Pinto, who is on his first visit to China, hailed the two countries had enjoyed increasingly closer friendship in recent years.

Timor-Leste appreciated China's support and help for its development, Pinto said, adding he hoped his visit could give impetus to the development of bilateral relationship.
