China and Russia on Tuesday vowed to further advance military ties.

The pledge came out of a meeting between Guo Boxiong, Vice Chairman of China's Central Military Commission, and Russian Minister of Defence Anatoly Serdyukov in Beijing.

Guo hailed the development of the China-Russia strategic partnership of coordination, highlighting their close high-level contact, deepening political mutual trust and cooperation on culture and energy as well as economy and trade.

The joint statement signed by Chinese President Hu Jintao and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in September had set the direction for the development of bilateral ties, Guo said.

Ties between the Chinese and Russian armed forces had developed soundly with fruitful cooperation, Guo said.

China wanted to work with Russia to actively implement the consensus reached by their state leaders, and boost military exchanges and pragmatic cooperation, Guo said.

Serdyukov said he hoped his visit would help promote the development of the relations between the Russian and Chinese armed forces.
