China is willing to strengthen cooperation with the International Committee of the Red Cross, President Xi Jinping said during a meeting with Peter Maurer, president of the ICRC.

Xi said China is keen to contribute more to the international cause of humanitarianism by actively taking part in international humanitarian aid, providing help to more underprivileged groups of people and observing its international responsibility and duty within its capacity.

Maurer said that the ICRC is also willing to further expand cooperation with China, which has made important contributions in the international Red Cross drive.

The Red Cross Society of China was established in 1904 and admitted by the ICRC in 1912.

Martin Unternahrer, communication coordinator of the ICRC's Regional Delegation for East Asia in Beijing, said cooperation between the RCSC and the ICRC "is nothing new", and it expanded after the ICRC established its office in Beijing.
