BEIJING, March 28 (Xinhua) -- Vice President Xi Jinping vowed on Wednesday to cement energy and trade cooperation with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and boost closer bilateral strategic partnership.

Xi made the pledge in his talks with visiting Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan at the Great Hall of the People.

Xi said the development process of China-UAE relations shows that respect and trust serve as an important foundation for bilateral ties, while cooperation was the lasting driving force and cultural exchanges were important for bilateral relations.

China and the UAE launched a strategic partnership in January this year during Premier Wen Jiabao's visit to the country. Xi said it marked a new stage of China-UAE relations.

In the current global situation, the two countries have enjoyed broad common interests and cooperation potential in developing their economies, boosting global and regional peace and development, he said.

"China appreciates the positive attitude of the UAE in strengthening ties with China, and hopes to make joint efforts with the country to promote bilateral friendly cooperation up to a new level," Xi said.
