China's top political adviser, Jia Qinglin, on Tuesday pledged to enhance political and security ties with Kazakhstan.

Jia, chairman of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) National Committee, arrived in Astana on Tuesday afternoon for a three-day official good-will visit to Kazakhstan.

Upon his arrival, Jia met Oral Muhamedjanov, chairman of the lower house of the Kazakh parliament.

"The Chinese-Kazakh relations always kept a sound and quickly developing momentum," Jia said, highlighting the enhanced strategic ties, political mutual trust, and support for each other on issues that concern the core interests of the two countries.

China and Kazakhstan have reached consensus on a series of issues this year, 18 years after the two countries established diplopmatic relations.

Jia appealed to the two sides to increase high-level visits, boost substantial cooperation between the two reciprocal economies, promote people-to-people contact and humanitarian exchange, especially on the organization of events such as the Asian Games in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou and the Asian Winter Games in Kazakhstan in January.

He called for further security cooperation between the two countries and among the members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), urging the two states to exert greater effort in fighting the three evil forces of terrorism, separatism and extremism.

China will also enhance coordination and cooperation with Kazakhstan within multilateral frameworks such as the United Nations, the SCO and the Conference on Interaction and Confidence-Building Measures in Asia (CICA), in a bid to safeguard common interests and cope with global and regional challenges, Jia said.

Muhamedjanov agreed with Jia, saying that Kazakhstan will tap potential for bilateral cooperation in such sectors as energy, environmental protection, agriculture and cross-border water resources.
