China and Indonesia have vowed to further strengthen their bilateral strategic partnership, according to a joint communique released Friday.

During Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao's official visit in Indonesia, he held in-depth talks with Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on bilateral ties, as well as a number of regional and international issues of mutual concern, said the communique.

The communique said both leaders have reached "important agreement."

"The two sides agreed to take further steps to enhance the existing close relations in the political field, deepen and widen economic and trade ties, promote cultural exchanges and people-to-people interaction and expand international cooperation under the framework of China-Indonesia strategic partnership," it said.

President Yudhoyono reaffirmed his nation's adherence to the one-China policy and supported "peaceful reunification of China," while Premier Wen reiterated China's firm support and respect for Indonesia's national unity, territorial integrity and sovereignty.

Both sides recognized the importance of intensifying mutual visits among leaders of the two nations and of enhancing high-level strategic dialogue mechanism.

Thus, they agreed to further strengthen bilateral consultation between the coordinating minister for political, legal and security affairs of Indonesia and the state councilor of the State Council of China.

By signing a memorandum of understanding between the two nations' foreign ministries on joint activities, the two sides aim to step up mutual exchanges, training for diplomats, policy planning and research as well as the establishment of hotlines between officials of the foreign ministries at various levels, said the communique
