08:55, September 12, 2012

YINCHUAN, Sept. 11 (Xinhua) -- Vice Premier Li Keqiang on Tuesday met with President of Micronesia Emanuel Mori to boost ties between the two countries.

Li conveyed President Hu Jintao's warm greetings and good wishes to Mori during their meeting in Yinchuan, capital of northwest China's Ningxia Hui autonomous region.

Li said China treats its relationship with Micronesia from a strategic point of view and regards Micronesia as a good friend and partner in the Pacific island region since the two countries established diplomatic ties.

He said China is willing to work with Micronesia to strengthen cooperation in all fields, maintain high-level exchanges, enhance political mutual trust, provide support on issues of core interests and major concerns, and enhance coordination on international and regional issues.

Noting that China and Micronesia are developing countries, Li said the two countries should make use of their respective advantages to expand pragmatic cooperation, speed up joint program and people-to-people communication, and increase personnel exchanges so as to bring benefits to the two peoples.

Mori expressed condolences to the Chinese government and its people for the earthquake in Yiliang county in southwest China's Yunnan province.

He thanked China's support to Micronesia over the years and said Micronesia will work with China to further promote bilateral relations. Most viewed commentaries
