Chinese President Hu Jintao in Seoul on Thursday met separately with U.S. President Barack Obama, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and South Korean President Lee Myung-bak to discuss bilateral ties and other issues of common interest.

Hu is in Seoul for a summit of the Group of 20 (G-20), which is slated for Thursday and Friday.

The following are some of the quotes of the Chinese president during the three meetings with his U.S., Russian and South Korean counterparts.

-- China is willing to strengthen the dialogue, exchanges and cooperation with the United States so as to further promote their positive, cooperative and comprehensive relations. -- Hu said during his meeting with Obama on the sidelines of the fifth G20 summit.

-- China believes that good Sino-U.S.ties are not only in the interests of the two countries and two peoples, but also conform to the world peace, stability and development, Hu said. He thanked Obama for inviting him to visit the United States next year, and hailed the preparations on both sides ahead of his visit.

-- The G-20 summit will start tonight. I'm confident that positive results will be achieved at the summit with concerted efforts from all parties concerned.

-- China and Russia have reached consensus on the all-round development of their strategic partnership of coordination, which gives impetus to the bilateral ties. -- Hu said at a meeting with Medvedev.

-- China is ready to strengthen coordination and cooperation with Russia within the framework of the G-20. That's to advance the multilateral mechanism toward the direction of conforming with the interests of emerging economies, including China and Russia.

-- China is ready to work with Russia to nudge the G-20 Seoul summit to reinforce the momentum in the world economy's recovery, advance reform of the international financial system, push for the resolution of unbalanced growth in the South and North and work for comprehensive and balanced results of the Doha round of talks.
