PARIS - President Xi Jinping and his Brazilian counterpart Dilma Rousseff met Monday on the sidelines of the ongoing Paris climate talks, agreeing to strengthen cooperation in a number of areas including global warming.

Both leaders were in Paris attending the opening ceremony of the two-week conference, officially called the 21st Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

China attaches great importance to its relations with Brazil and is willing to deepen political and strategic mutual trust, promote communication and cooperation in various areas, and deepen the comprehensive strategic partnership between the two countries, Xi said.

The Chinese president urged the two sides to expand industrial investment cooperation in the fields of energy and resources, agriculture, infrastructure and manufacturing.

Meanwhile, China and Brazil could boost bilateral trade, enhance financial cooperation, and make effective use of the BRICS New Development Bank as well as a package of financing arrangements between China and Latin America so as to provide financial support for promoting China-Brazil trade and investment, Xi said.

The two leaders also discussed cooperation on tackling climate change.

As important developing countries and members of the BRICS group, China and Brazil enjoy extensive common interest on climate change, Xi said.

The two sides should work closely and utilize their respective advantages and influence to help yield a comprehensive, balanced, strong and legally binding outcome from the Paris conference, and safeguard the unity and interest of developing countries, Xi added.
