China and South Africa should jointly implement cooperative projects including a railway corridor, technology park, occupational training and local-to-local exchanges, President Xi Jinping said on Saturday.

Xi made the remarks while meeting with South African President Jacob Zuma in Western India's Goa during the sidelines of the BRICS summit, which is being held from Saturday to Sunday.

The two countries should keep high-level exchanges and deepen communications among political parties, legislature departments, security and militaries, Xi said.

The Chinese president called to enhance coordination in international affairs and contribute more to world peace and stability. China supports South Africa to play a bigger role in global and regional affairs, Xi said.

China firmly supports African countries' exploration of ways to develop independently without inference from outside powers, Xi added.

Zuma spoke highly of the fruitful achievements made during the G20 summit held in Hangzhou of China last month, especially the G20 summit's attention to development issues.

He expressed gratitude to China's support in areas including infrastructure construction and human resources training.
