BEIJING, Sept. 9 (Xinhua) -- China and Argentina have agreed to further enhance mutual trust and their strategic partnership as the two emerging economies are playing an increasingly important role in the world arena.
"China will work with Argentina to strengthen strategic mutual trust, expand cooperation and coordination within multilateral frameworks in order to promote bilateral ties and benefit the two peoples," Vice President Xi Jinping told Argentine Foreign Minister Hector Timerman on Friday.

During their hour-long meeting at the Great Hall of the People in downtown Beijing, Xi hailed the development of bilateral ties since the two states forged diplomatic ties in 1972 and established the strategic partnership in 2004.

Both China and Argentina are striving for a more fair and reasonable international political and economic order, Xi said, noting the two countries maintain close coordination on major international issues.

Timerman said his country will stick to the one-China policy and firmly support China's stance on Tibet and Taiwan.

He said Argentina will boost investment, trade and technology cooperation with China to realize common development as the world situation is undergoing complex changes.

Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi also held talks with Timerman earlier Friday, vowing to further promote the China-Argentina relationship.

The two countries have maintained frequent high-level contacts, continuously expanded economic, trade and cultural cooperation, and closely exchanged views on international and regional issues, Yang said.

Yang also voiced his appreciation for Argentina's adherence to the one-China policy.

"As the coming year will mark the 40th anniversary of our diplomatic ties, China is willing to take this opportunity to work with Argentina to continuously deepen bilateral trust and cooperation," Yang said.

Timerman said Argentina and China are both significant emerging market countries and share a broad range of consensus, which serves as a solid foundation for the development of bilateral ties.
