BEIJING, June 8 (Xinhua) -- State Councilor Dai Bingguo met with Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Friday, hailing the establishment of a strategic partnership between the two countries.

Karzai said the establishment of the strategic partnership with China and SCO observer status approval were vital for Afghanistan, adding that the country appreciates China's help in its reconstruction.

Afghanistan on Thursday was granted observer status within the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), which concluded its Beijing summit on the same day.

"Afghanistan is willing to implement the consensus reached by both sides and promote the development of bilateral relations. Afghanistan welcomes China to play a stronger role in regional affairs," said Karzai.

The creation of the partnership and Afghanistan receiving observer status within the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) show the great importance and vigorous support given by the Chinese government and relevant parties to Afghanistan, said Dai.
