BEIJING, Sept. 8 (Xinhua) -- Vice President Xi Jinping met with Kazakh Foreign Minister Yerzhan Kazykhanov in Beijing on Thursday, vowing to push forward further growth of the bilateral all-round strategic partnership.

Calling the two countries friendly neighbors and strategic partners, Xi said Sino-Kazakh relations have witnessed sound growth in recent years.

Both sides have enhanced political mutual trust, cooperation and cultural exchanges, firmly supported each other on major issues concerning respective core interests, and kept close coordination in regional and global affairs, which contributed to regional and world peace, stability and development, he added.

China and Kazakhstan upgraded their ties to all-round strategic partnership during President Hu Jintao's visit to the country in June, which had injected a strong driving force for the development of bilateral relations, Xi said.

"To develop long-term, stable and dynamic Sino-Kazakh all-round strategic partnership meets the fundamental interests of both countries and peoples," he said.

"China treasures its traditional friendship with Kazakhstan, and to enhance relations with the country is one of the priorities of China's diplomacy," Xi said.

He vowed joint efforts to take the opportunity of the 20th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties next year to further deepen political mutual trust, enhance practical cooperation in energy and non-resource sectors, cement coordination in international organizations, such as the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and the United Nations.

Calling China a great neighbor, Kazykhanov told Xi the Kazakh government attaches great importance to developing relations with China, and regards China as a close friend and reliable partner.

He praised the achievements of bilateral ties, citing enhanced political mutual trust and remarkable cooperation in all fields.

Kazakhstan is ready to work with China to enhance strategic mutual trust and cooperation in key areas such as trade, energy, finance, transportation and high technology in a bid to further boost the bilateral all-round strategic partnership, Kazykhanov said.

The Kazakh foreign minister is on an official visit from Sept.7-9 at the invitation of his Chinese counterpart Yang Jiechi.
