BEIJING, July 19 (Xinhua) -- President Hu Jintao on Thursday held talks with Equatorial Guinean President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo in Beijing, vowing to further advance bilateral relations.

Hu welcomed Obiang to the opening ceremony of the Fifth Ministerial Meeting of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC).

Calling Obiang an old friend of China, Hu said the country appreciates his positive contribution to the development of bilateral relations.

Bilateral relations have achieved comprehensive development since the two countries forged diplomatic ties 42 years ago, said Hu, adding that China is willing to work with Equatorial Guinea to further develop bilateral ties.

Hu called on the two sides to deepen political cooperation, maintain friendly exchanges between governments and parties of the two countries and continue to support each other on major issues concerning sovereignty and security.

He hoped that the two sides promote cooperation in economic and trade, agriculture, energy, infrastructure and human resources, adding that China will provide assistance to Equatorial Guinea's development within its capacity.

He also suggested the two countries enhance coordination in international affairs, so as to jointly safeguard the common interests of the developing countries.

Noting that it was his eighth official visit to China, Obiang said China is a good friend of Equatorial Guinea and his country cherishes the friendship with China.

He praised the achievements made in bilateral friendly cooperation and appreciated China's contributions to Equatorial Guinea's economic and social development.

He said Equatorial Guinea is willing to beef up cooperation with China in such areas as economic and trade, agriculture, infrastructure and health, so as to achieve common development.

Equatorial Guinea stands for democratization of the international relations and is ready to strengthen communication and coordination with China in major international and regional affairs, said the president.
