PARIS - Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said China and France should follow the trend of world development, take up their responsibilities and develop new areas of cooperation.

Li made the appeal in a signed article published Monday by Le Figaro newspaper.

Li arrived in France late Monday for an official visit, during which he will also deliver a speech at the headquarters of the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development in Paris.

Noting that the trip is his first official visit to France as the head of the Chinese government, Li expressed the hope that it will start a new chapter for relations and international cooperation between China and France.

It is important for China and France to have a strategic and global vision, and work together to strengthen political mutual trust and traditional friendship between them, Li said in the article, adding that healthy bilateral relations can benefit the two peoples and ensure better prospects for peace and prosperity in the world.

Pointing out that both China and France are important members of the international community, Li stressed that the two sides have the responsibilities to "reinforce the international cooperation and play together a constructive role for peace and development of mankind."
