China and Arab countries agreed Friday to establish a strategic cooperative relationship, thus upgrading their partnership which pursues common prosperity, a better future and a fairer global order.

The two sides also adopted a communique and an action plan wrapping up the two-day 4th Ministerial Meeting of the China-Arab Cooperation Forum held in China's northern port city of Tianjin.

The meeting, which set an example for better cooperation among developing countries, also reaffirmed a common aspiration for strategic cooperation between China and the Arab world.

It also identified a huge potential for economic cooperation and profound cultural exchanges, and for the laying of a solid foundation for long-term cooperation.

The meeting was held at a time when the world is undergoing profound transformation, with the world economy gradually escaping the financial crisis, emerging economies on the rise, and the global political and economic order in the process of restructuring.

China and the Arab nations, and the developing world as a whole, share similar goals under such circumstances: maintaining regional peace and security, boosting domestic economy, promoting multilateralism and democratization of international relations, and amplifying the voice of the developing world in world affairs.
