BEIJING, April 23 (Xinhua) -- Vice Chairman of the Central Military Commission Fan Changlong and Defense Minister Chang Wanquan on Tuesday met with Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey, respectively.

Fan called on the two sides to enhance strategic trust through dialogue and consultation and deepen pragmatic cooperation, stressing that they should respect each other's core interests and major concerns and gradually eliminate the barriers to bilateral ties.

Dempsey said in the meetings that the U.S. military is ready to further enhance exchanges and cooperation with the Chinese military.
