BOGOTA, April 23 (Xinhua) -- China and Colombia on Monday vowed to improve bilateral cooperation and strengthen coordination in global issues.

"Both China and Colombia are developing countries. We would like to work together with Colombia and treat our bilateral relations from a strategic and long-term perspective," Li Changchun, a senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC), said at a meeting with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos.

Li, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, who was in Colombia for a two-day official visit, said amid an international situation which is complicated and changeful, "China and Colombia should join hands to push for a just, equitable new international political and economic order."

Santos said both Colombia and China are in an important period of development and the two countries are committed to sustainable development, which holds great potential for bilateral cooperation.

The Colombian president also said Colombia wants to promote economic cooperation and trade with China, deepen cultural exchange and strengthen coordination with China in multilateral mechanisms such as the United Nations and the Group of 20 developed and emerging economies, as well as in global issues including climate change and anti-terrorism.
