MEXICO CITY, June 4 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived here Tuesday for a three-day state visit aimed at lifting China-Mexico ties to a higher level.

Xi's plane touched down at the Benito Juarez International Airport in Mexico City, where Mexican Foreign Minister Jose Antonio Meade Kuribrena was on hand to greet the Chinese president and his wife Peng Liyuan.

The Chinese leader is scheduled to hold talks with his Mexican counterpart Enrique Pena Nieto, who visited China and met Xi two months ago, on bilateral cooperation.

Xi is also expected to meet parliamentary leaders of Mexico to exchange views on bilateral issues.

During Xi's visit, the two countries will sign a series of cooperation deals in such areas as economy, trade and academics, and issue a joint statement, according to Chinese diplomats.

In a written statement released upon his arrival at the airport, Xi conveyed the Chinese people's sincere greetings and best wishes to the Mexican people.

He said the traditional friendship between China and Mexico dates back to ancient times, adding that the two countries have already become key cooperative partners for each other in the world.

To comprehensively deepen China-Mexico strategic partnership conforms to the practical and long-term interest of the two countries and peoples, helps promote solidarity and cooperation among developing nations, and is conducive to world peace, stability and development, Xi said.
