BEIJING, Nov. 5 (Xinhua) -- China said Saturday that positive and balanced outcomes were achieved at the sixth summit of the Group of Twenty (G20) held earlier this week in the southern French city of Cannes.

The Chinese spokesman mentioned the Declaration, the Communique and the Action Plan issued after the meeting as "three outcome documents" of the G20 Cannes summit.

"All the sides noted that the European Union has recently put forward a new series of measures and ideas to address the sovereign debt issue and hope that these measures will help Europe to stabilize the financial market, overcome the current difficulties and spur the economic recovery and development," he said.
