16:40, December 10, 2011

WASHINGTON, Dec. 9 (Xinhua) -- Wang Jiarui, head of the International Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC)'s Central Committee, discussed China-U.S. ties with some U.S. congressmen here Friday.

China highly valued the development of its relations with the United States, Wang told Democrat and Republican lawmakers in separate meetings with Charles Boustany and Rick Larsen, co-chairs of the U.S.-China Working Group in the U.S. House of Representatives, and with several Senators, including Bernie Sanders, Dianne Feinstein and Roy Blunt.

China is willing to work with the United States to implement the important consensus reached by leaders of the two countries so as to enhance strategic mutual trust, maintain close high-level communications, deepen bilateral cooperation, promote coordination on international and regional issues, and constantly enrich the China-U.S. cooperative partnership based on mutual respect and mutual benefit, Wang said.

Boustany and Larsen briefed Wang on their group's work, while reiterating their commitment to deepening mutual understanding and trust between the two countries in a bid to help achieve sustained, sound and steady development of China-U.S. relations.

The U.S. lawmakers spoke highly of the importance of U.S.-China relations, and said they welcomed a strong and successful China that would play a bigger role in international affairs.

They promised to work together with the Chinese side to push forward the U.S.-China relationship and maintain peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region and the world.

Wang is leading a CPC delegation to the fourth high-level dialogue between the CPC and the Democratic and Republican parties, which started here on Thursday.
