Visiting Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi and his Ukrainian counterpart Konstantine Grishchenko met here Wednesday to discuss further development of relations between their two countries.

Yang said that relations between China and Ukraine have developed smoothly over the past 18 years since the two nations established diplomatic ties.

He noted that at talks held on the sidelines of the Nuclear Security Summit in April, Chinese President Hu Jintao and his Ukrainian counterpart Viktor Yanukovych reached important consensus that provided guidance for future development of bilateral relations.

China highly appreciates Ukraine's firm support on China's core concerns, said Yang.

Yang stressed that China always cherishes the traditional friendship between the two nations and is willing to work with Ukraine to implement the consensus reached by leaders of the two nations.

Echoing Yang's views, Grishchenko said that cooperation between Ukraine and China in politics, economy, trade, education and culture has developed smoothly in recent years.

"Ukraine will as always keep promoting the friendly cooperation with China, and make further efforts for the development of relations between China and Ukraine," he added.

Yang arrived here Tuesday on a two-day official visit to Ukraine.
