CAIRO, May 2 (Xinhua) -- Arab League (AL) chief Nabil al-Arabi said here on Wednesday that relations between China and Arab countries have been "very solid and improving all the time in all fields."

"We expect more, closer cooperation in the future," the pan- Arab body's secretary general told reporters of Chinese media in the AL headquarters, ahead of his visit to China.

Arabi, who assumed office as the new AL chief in July 2011, will start his first six-day visit to China on Friday.

"China has made great advance and progress," he said. "I really would like to take the opportunity to have deep conversation with Chinese foreign minister on China's policies and to exchange views about what's going on in the world."

"China is a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council and one of the few countries who have been consistently supporting all Arab causes," said Arabi. He said he would hear China's views on the Palestinians, the Syrian crisis and bilateral relations between China and the Arab League.

Arabi said he was looking forward to attending the fifth ministerial meeting of the China-Arab Cooperation Forum to be held in Tunisia at the end of this month.

"The meeting is more important than previous ones," said Arabi. "We have been preparing for the meeting for a long time. We expect there will be some results coming from it."

The secretary general said the forum "is a great opportunity to promote better understanding and relations through exchange of views."
