HONOLULU, United States, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Hu Jintao met Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang on Saturday in Honolulu, Hawaii, to discuss bilateral ties and other issues of common concern.

The two leaders are attending the Economic Leaders' Meeting of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) scheduled for Saturday and Sunday. Both China and Vietnam are APEC members.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the normalization of bilateral relations between China and Vietnam. Over the past two decades, the two sides have developed an all-around strategic cooperative partnership.

In his talks with visiting General-Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam Nguyen Phu Trong last October, President Hu said the stable and healthy growth of bilateral ties is in the basic interests of both countries and has great significance for the peace and development in Asia and the world.

Hu said that China is ready to work with Vietnam to maintain and further develop their all-around strategic cooperative partnership.

Hu put forward a five-point proposal to that end, including enhancing political mutual trust, strengthening exchanges between ruling parties, deepening pragmatic cooperation, properly addressing problems in bilateral ties through dialogues and consultation and stepping up cooperation in the international arena.
