Uruguayan President Jose Mujica and a visiting senior Chinese legislator agreed Thursday to expand the two nations' bilateral cooperation in all sectors.

Uruguay greatly cherished its relationship with China, and would like to work with China in expanding cooperation and exchanges in such fields as politics, trade, culture, education and technology, Mujica said while meeting with Lu Yongxiang, vice chairman of the Standing Committee of China's National People's Congress (NPC).

He also said Uruguay would firmly adhere to the one-China policy and further boost bilateral ties.

Lu said China and Uruguay have enjoyed ever deepening mutual political trust, fruitful cooperation and fine coordination in international affairs since the two nations forged diplomatic ties 23 years ago.

He also said Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping's visit to Uruguay last month has strongly pushed forward the development of bilateral relations, adding that China will join Uruguay in advancing their all-round cooperation.

Also on Thursday, Lu met with Uruguay's Vice President Daniel Astori and Luis Lacalle Pou, president of Uruguay's Chamber of Deputies.

Uruguay is Lu's second stop of his three-nation tour, which has already taken him to the United States. He will also visit Argentina.
