Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao arrived in Jakarta Thursday evening for an official visit to Indonesia in a bid to further enhance bilateral ties between China and Indonesia.

The following are highlights of Chinese Premier Wen's activities in Indonesia on Friday:

JAKARTA -- Wen called for further cooperation with Indonesia on disaster prevention and relief to better respond to natural calamities.

He made the remarks when meeting an Indonesian international medical team which participated in rescue operations after a devastating earthquake hit southwest China's Sichuang province in 2008.

The premier said the Indonesian government and people extended a helping hand to the Chinese people immediately after the massive quake and that the medical team demonstrated the depth of international humanitarianism.

Wen expressed appreciation to the team, saying that what its members brought was not only emergency medical assistance but also the Indonesian people's affection for the Chinese.

JAKARTA -- Wen said that China will further boost cooperation in education with Indonesia.

When visiting University of Al Azhar Indonesia in Jakarta, the premier joined students in singing an Indonesian folk song after watching them perform folk dances and reciting an ancient Chinese poem.

While every nation should respect different ethnic groups and religions, these various ethnic groups and religions should also respect each other, Wen said.

JAKARTA -- Wen met with Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and both leaders stressed the importance of promoting mutually beneficial cooperation and bilateral ties.

The two leaders exchanged views on bilateral relations as well as regional and international issues of common concern. They were confident that Wen's visit will serve as an important milestone in the development of China-Indonesia strategic partnership.

As two major emerging developing economies in Asia, China and Indonesian share broad interests and enjoy enormous potential for cooperation, Wen said.

He said that China-Indonesia relations have now entered a new stage of comprehensive development and carry regional and global strategic significance.
