BEIJING, April 8 (Xinhua) -- China's top political advisor Yu Zhengsheng on Monday met with visiting Finnish President Sauli Niinisto and Peruvian President Ollanta Humala Tasso, respectively.

In his meeting with Niinisto, Yu, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), pointed out that as one of China's important European partners, Finland has huge potential for cooperation with China, especially in the fields of energy conservation, environment, technology and innovation.

Yu noted that the agreement reached between Niinisto and Chinese President Xi Jinping to build a future-oriented new-type cooperative partnership has expanded prospects for the development of bilateral relations.

"The CPPCC will work with the Finnish parliament to exchange successful experiences in national management and governance in an aim to raise bilateral ties to a higher level," Yu said.

Agreeing with Yu's views on bilateral relations, Niinisto said China's efforts to realize "the Chinese dream" will benefit countries throughout the world, including Finland, and his country is looking forward to furthering bilateral cooperation.

While conferring with Humala, Yu noted that the development of friendly cooperation between China and Peru will serve the interests of the two nations and two peoples.

"China is willing to make concerted efforts with the Peruvian side to consolidate political mutual trust and deepen cooperation in the agricultural, mining and infrastructure sectors," Yu added.

He also pledged that the CPPCC will intensify high-level exchanges with the Peruvian side in a bid to create more benefits for the two peoples.

Humala said China is one of Peru's most important cooperation partners, suggesting the two nations foster cooperation in such fields as education, culture, trade and investment.
