China backs European integration: official


08:15, May 31, 2012

BRUSSELS - A senior official with the Communist Party of China (CPC) on Wednesday stressed that China supports Europe's integration process as well as its efforts to deal with the sovereign debt crisis.

China has faith in Europe's capability of getting over the current crisis, said Wang Jiarui, head of the CPC Central Committee's International Department, during a meeting with European Parliament President Martin Schulz in the sidelines of a China-EU high level political forum that ended here on Wednesday.

Wang said the Sino-EU relation is one of the most important bilateral relations in the world.

The two sides should broaden political mutual trust, boost mutually beneficial cooperation and avoid misunderstandings and misgivings through dialogue and exchanges, Wang said.

In another meeting with EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, Wang said China's development has benefited from Europe's experience.

He said China supported the EU to play a bigger role on the international stage.

For her part, Ashton added that the mutual trust and cooperation can be furthered as long as there was sincerity and mutual understanding between the two sides.
