BEIJING, Aug. 28 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Hu Jintao held talks with visiting Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing on Tuesday afternoon.

Hu said China understands and respects the will of the Egyptian people, and supports them to choose political system and the path of development in accordance with their country's situation.

China also supports the efforts made by Egypt to safeguard national sovereignty and independence and to promote economic and social progress, Hu said.

Describing China as Egypt's "good brother, friend and partner," Morsi said Egypt, at a special historical period in its national development, thanked China for its friendly policies, understanding and support.

He said Egypt hopes to learn from China's successful experiences in reform and opening-up and strengthen cooperation with China.

Hu underscored the important role of Egypt, as a regional power and representative developing country, in international and regional affairs. He said China always views Egypt as a strategic cooperative partner in the Arab world and Africa.

He proposed four points of view to further enhance bilateral relations.

First, the two countries should deepen political relations by conducting closer exchanges between leaders, governments, parliaments and political parties. The two sides should give full play to various consultation mechanisms and continue to firmly support each other on major issues concerning each other's core interests.

Second, the two sides should expand economic and trade cooperation, proceed with construction on big projects such as a Suez trade cooperation area, and enhance cooperation in a variety of areas, including infrastructure construction, agriculture, transportation, energy and finance.
