Chinese State Councilor Dai Bingguo met with U.S. Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg in Beijing Thursday afternoon.

"I am glad to meet you here in Beijing," Dai said, noting he believed Steinberg had conducted candid talks with senior Chinese diplomats on bilateral ties and the Korean Peninsula issue.

Earlier Thursday, Steinberg met with Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Zhang Zhijun and Wu Dawei, Chinese special representative for Korean Peninsula affairs.

After his arrival on Wednesday, Steinberg also met with Vice Foreign Minister Cui Tiankai.

"As two most important countries in the world as well as permanent members of the Security Council, China and the United States strengthening dialogue and exchanges will benefit both sides, and the world's peace and stability," said Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu at a regular press briefing Thursday afternoon.

China is ready to work with the U.S. side to push bilateral ties developing along the healthy and stable track, Jiang said.

Steinberg is on a three-day visit to Beijing. This is also his third China visit in this year.
