China-Britain relations are flourishing, which not only conforms to the fundamental interests of the two peoples, but also is conducive to world peace and development, says Chinese Ambassador to Britain Liu Xiaoming.

In a recent joint interview with London-based Chinese media prior to Chinese Vice Premier Li Keqiang's official visit to Britain on Jan. 9-12, Liu said Li was expected to meet British Prime Minister David Cameron and other leaders to exchange views on the comprehensive development of Sino-British relations.

Liu said Li would also meet with British financial and business figures, young students and scholars, and visit a science and technology innovation park.

He said Li's visit would be the first for a Chinese leader since the British coalition government took office and the first high-level exchange between the two countries in 2011.

Liu reviewed the development of Sino-British relations during the past year, which he said had kept "a good momentum."

The new British government has continued to pursue a positive China policy, and Sino-British relations have achieved a smooth transition and sustainable development, Liu said.

He added that China and Britain have maintained close high-level contacts and deepened their strategic mutual trust.

In November, Cameron led the largest-ever delegation to China, and leaders of both countries reached important consensus on further enhancing political mutual trust, and promoting cooperation in various fields.
