BEIJING, Oct. 24 (Xinhua) -- Chinese State Councilor Dai Bingguo met with EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton here on Monday to discuss issues, including bilateral ties.

The two leaders also exchanged ideas on the situations in Europe, North Africa and West Asia, and discussed the upcoming G20 summit in Cannes.
