BEIJING, May 4 (Xinhua) -- President Hu Jintao on Friday hailed the "positive results" of the latest round of a high-level dialogue between China and the United States as he met with U.S. negotiators attending the annual gathering.

Hu said the fourth round of the China-U.S. Strategic and Economic Dialogue (S&ED) has resulted in both parties reaching several significant agreements.

He expressed appreciation for the "excellent work" accomplished by both sides.

Hu made the remarks while meeting with the U.S. delegation to the S&ED, which is headed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, special representatives of U.S. President Barack Obama.

The fourth round of the S&ED is being held in Beijing from Thursday to Friday.

Hu called for the two sides to fully utilize the talks in strengthening strategic communication, enhancing mutual trust and advancing strategic cooperation in order to contribute to the development of the cooperative partnership between China and the United States.

Hu said both sides should adopt a long-term view and proceed from the basic interests of their respective peoples in enhancing mutual trust and expanding cooperation.

Hu called for the two sides to respect each other's core interests and appropriately address differences in order to create a better future for China-U.S. relations.

Clinton said the U.S.-China relationship is stronger than it has ever been.
