Besides political and diplomatic dialogue on all major international issues and the promotion of the development of trade and industrial cooperation, France and China could open new fields for cooperation, the president said.

Current bilateral cooperation on sustainable development, personnel exchange and scientific communication all had room to be expanded, he said.

In his opinion, the "ambitious" will to promote France-China ties was not only a reflection of "the long profound friendship" between the two nations, but also a response to new challenges in the 21st century.

Sarkozy said the visits by leaders of the two countries would bring "France-China partnership to a new decisive stage."

Taking the European Union as a whole, Sarkozy said it was important to establish closer EU-China ties both in economic and political terms.

"I think we must go even further, going deeper in our consultation on all major international issues and providing content to our cooperation (to make it) more concrete and operational," Sarkozy said.

"Europe and China should work together more, especially to organize globalization," he said.
