He said presidents of the two countries met twice last year, and since the start of this year, the two countries have maintained close contact and exchanges of visits, with a number of senior Chinese leaders coming to Uzbekistan for visits or meetings, including State Councilor Meng Jianzhu, Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi and Finance Minister Xie Xuren.

Yu said that Uzbekistan has firmly supported China over issues concerning China's core interests, and China on its part, has always supported Uzbekistan's efforts to safeguard its national sovereignty and independence as well as its stability and development.

On bilateral economic and trade cooperation, the ambassador said the two countries managed to register a year-on-year increase of 18.9 percent in their trade volume last year despite the global financial crisis. China has become Uzbekistan's second largest trade partner after Russia.

He attributed the hard-won growth to the visions and wise policies of the leaders of the two countries.

As SCO members, the two countries face the common tasks of safeguarding national sovereignty and security, and maintaining regional peace and stability. The two countries share similar positions on issues of fighting the "three forces" of terrorism, separatism and extremism. Senior security officials from both countries have maintained necessary contacts and conducted fruitful cooperation, Yu said.
