Visiting senior Chinese Communist Party official Liu Yunshan said here Thursday China would like to further expand bilateral cooperation with Kazakhstan in all fields.

While meeting with Kazakhstan's Prime Minister Karim Masimov, Liu, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, said China and Kazakhstan had enjoyed a long-lasting friendship and were good neighbors and strategic partners.

"In recent years, high-level exchanges between the two countries have been intense, while the two sides have maintained close coordination in major international and regional issues," Liu said.

He said, during Chinese President Hu Jintao's visit to Kazakhstan this June, leaders of the two countries reached new and important consensus to deepen the strategic partnership, which would bring broader prospects to the two nations' relations.

"The Chinese side is willing to work with Kazakhstan to implement that consensus and to further explore potential for cooperation in all fields so as to enrich China-Kazakhstan strategic cooperation," Liu said.

Masimov spoke highly of the friendly bilateral relationship between the two sides, as well as China's achievements in social and economic development and its role in maintaining regional security and stability.

He appreciated China's support to his country, adding that Kazakhstan would like to strengthen in practical ways the cooperation with China in various sectors to consolidate foundations of the bilateral strategic partnership.

Liu also met on Thursday with the First Vice Chairman of Nur Otan People's Democratic Party of Kazakhstan Nurlan Nigmatullin.

They agreed inter-party communications had played a unique and major role in advancing the China-Kazakhstan strategic partnership, adding that both sides would like to enhance multi-layered and all-round cooperation to boost the ties between the two countries and the two parties.

Liu arrived in Kazakhstan Wednesday for a visit at the invitation of the Nur Otan People's Democratic Party.
