Top Chinese legislator Wu Bangguo and Premier Wen Jiabao met with visiting Russian President Dmitry Medvedev Monday, with all three vowing to step up bilateral cooperation.

Defining Russia as China's "most important strategic partner," Wu told Medvedev China always regards relations with Russia a priority.

He said this year is important for China-Russia ties, citing frequent meetings between state leaders and vigorous trade growth.

Medvedev told Wu he had an in-depth exchange of views with Chinese leaders on a wide range of topics and signed a series of important agreements during his "successful" China visit.

He stressed the importance of Russia-China relations to international relations.

Chinese President Hu Jintao and Medvedev attended a ceremony marking the completion of the China-Russia crude oil pipeline after their talks Monday.

Calling parliamentary exchanges a key component for the China-Russia strategic partnership of cooperation, Wu proposed enhancing exchange between legislatures and cementing cooperation on large projects.

Medvedev agreed with Wu's suggestion, adding that his country highly values its strategic partnership of cooperation with China.

Russia is ready to make joint efforts with China to strengthen high-level contacts and substantial cooperation in various areas, he added.
