Top legislator Wu Bangguo met with visiting Jordanian Senate President Taher al-Masri on Friday, calling on both countries to forge closer cooperation and boost bilateral relations to a higher level.

Wu, chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), the nation's top legislative body, noted that cooperation between the legislative bodies of both countries is an important ingredient of bilateral relations and expressed his hope that the NPC and the Jordanian Senate can cement their cooperation in the future.

The top legislator also spoke highly of the recent growth of China-Jordan ties, pointing out that relations between the two countries are at an all-time high.

"China highly values its ties with Jordan and is committed to working with the Jordan side to boost bilateral cooperation in various fields based on the principles of equality, mutual benefit and common prosperity," Wu added.

Wu also conferred with Masri on topics pertaining to the situation in the Middle East, pledging that China will work with countries in the region and the international community to push for a just and reasonable solution to the Palestine issue and continue to promote regional peace, stability and development.

Echoing Wu's views on bilateral relations, Masri said the Jordanian people are always willing to share their friendship with the Chinese people and feel inspired to witness the achievements that China has made in recent years.

China is an important partner of Jordan and the Senate of the Jordanian Assembly will increase its exchanges with the NPC, Masri added.
