Chinese President Hu Jintao Thursday called for more efforts to enhance all-round cooperation with Russia and Tajikistan during his separate meetings in Tashkent with presidents of the two countries on the sidelines of the annual summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

In his meeting with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, Hu said Sino-Russian relations witnessed all-round progress in the first half of this year and several important events will take place in the second half between the two countries, including Medvedev's visit to China and the regular meeting of prime ministers of the two countries.

He called on both countries to further advance economic cooperation, promote cultural and people-to-people exchanges through such important events as the ongoing "Chinese Language Year" activities in Russia, and strengthen strategic communications in accordance with changes in the international system and in major international and regional issues.

He said he was confident that the Sino-Russian relations of strategic cooperation and partnership would achieve new development and reach new level with the joint efforts of both sides.

On the future development of the SCO, he proposed three aspects of work for SCO members to focus on: firstly, to continuously deepen solidarity and mutual trust; secondly, to stick to security and pragmatic cooperation as priorities; and thirdly, to carry out external exchanges and cooperation to boost the organization's international status and influence.

Medvedev pledged to join hands with China to further deepen bilateral ties, expand trade cooperation, boost cultural and humanitarian exchanges and cooperation.

Russia will also make more efforts to promote contacts and coordination in regional and international issues, and maintain coordination under the framework of the SCO to safeguard the peace and stability of the region as well as of the world at large, Medvedev said.
