SEOUL, March 26 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Hu Jintao and his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama met Monday to discuss bilateral ties and major regional and global issues of common concern.

During the talks on the sidelines of the Seoul Nuclear Security Summit, Hu said the world situation is continuing to witness profound and complex changes and that the world economy is still facing many unstable and uncertain factors.

Safeguarding the China-U.S. cooperative partnership is not only beneficial to the interests of the two countries and peoples, but also has significant influence on world peace, stability and prosperity, he said.

Hu said the two countries should enhance dialogues, exchanges and cooperation and respect each other's core interests and properly handle divergences and sensitive issues so as to push forward the Sino-U.S. relationship on the right course.

The Chinese president put forward a four-point proposal on the further development of China-U.S. ties.

First, he called for efforts to push forward the cooperative partnership between China and the United States.

Second, the two countries should expand and deepen economic and trade ties by strengthening mutually beneficial and win-win practical cooperation in various fields, he said.

Third, China and the United States should have positive interactions in the Asian-Pacific region, Hu said. China respects the existence and legitimate interests of the United States in the region and welcomes the constructive role of Washington in regional affairs. China hopes that the U.S. side will fully address and respect China's interests, said Hu. The two sides should strengthen communication and dialogues to try to realize a win-win situation. he said.
