Visiting Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping met in Montevideo on Wednesday with Uruguayan President Jose Mujica on ways to push bilateral friendly cooperation to a new level.

Xi first conveyed President Hu Jintao's cordial greetings. He said that though China and Uruguay are oceans apart, the two peoples have had a long history of friendly contacts.

Bilateral relations have progressed smoothly since the two countries established diplomatic ties in 1988, Xi said.

The two countries have strengthened their political mutual trust with frequent exchanges of high-level visits. Bilateral pragmatic cooperation has yielded fruitful results and has been further broadened. The two countries have maintained increasingly dynamic exchanges and cooperation in culture, education and tourism, and kept close coordination and cooperation in regional and international affairs, he added.

China is satisfied with the development of bilateral ties, Xi said.

As both China and Uruguay are developing countries facing similar tasks for national development, boosting further development of bilateral ties and enhancing the pragmatic cooperation in various fields are in the fundamental interests of both countries and peoples, Xi said.

Under the new circumstances, China hopes to work with Uruguay to push their friendly cooperation to a new high, the Chinese vice president said.

Xi put forward a four-point proposal for further enhancing bilateral ties.

First, the two countries should deepen political mutual trust and cement the foundation for cooperation. Xi said China is willing to maintain the momentum of high-level contacts and support friendly exchanges between legislative bodies of the two countries.
