China's top legislator Wu Bangguo on Thursday called for more parliamentary exchanges between China and the United States, saying that dialogue and communication could help improve mutual trust.

Wu, chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), made the remarks when meeting with a delegation of senior U.S. Senators in Beijing.

Wu said the NPC has established a regular exchange mechanism with the U.S. side, which has already played a positive role in developing Sino-American relations.

"I hope the two sides could keep improving dialogue and communication to continue to help enhance mutual trust and cooperation between China and the United States," Wu said.

Talking about bilateral relations, Wu stressed that China and the United States share many more common interests than differences.

China will work with the United States to actively implement the consensus reached between President Hu Jintao and President Barack Obama, and hopes that the two countries could take each other's key concerns into consideration, and foster cooperation and promote friendship to a higher level, Wu said.

The delegation was led by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and consisted of nine other senators.

Reid said the United States and China share similar views on many significant issues, and the U.S. Senate hopes to work with the NPC to push forward the bilateral cooperation in fields such as trade, environment and clean energy.
