QINGDAO, Sept. 28 (Xinhua) -- China and U.S. militaries held an annual meeting under the Sino-U.S. military Maritime Consultative Agreement from Sept. 27 to 28 in northern port city of Qingdao.

The two militaries agreed to enhance contacts and communication in order to increase mutual trust and cooperation with a respectful, equal, active and constructive attitude.

They exchanged views on maritime security situations of the two countries since 2010 and discussed detailed measures to solve problems in this area.

The two sides agreed to strengthen military-to-military cooperation in anti-piracy and humanitarian aid as well as disaster relief efforts.
