German Chancellor Angela Merkel stressed that Germany-China relations are very good and Germany is willing to take more responsibilities in the international battle against terrorism.

Merkel made the remarks Saturday at the 42nd Munich Conference on Security Policy, which opened on Friday with the official theme as renewal of transatlantic relations.

The German Chancellor addressed the conference with a report on Europe's relationship with the United States.

When asked if Germany could push cooperation with China for a peaceful solution to the Iranian nuclear issue, Merkel said that Germany and China enjoy very good relations.

German media noticed that Merkel made herself not long ago the first government leader that proposed the "six-party talks" on Iran's nuclear program.

In her speech at the conference, Merkel said that transatlantic relations remain the shared foundation of value for Europe and the United States, who also need to find partners in security in other regions.

More than 300 delegates including government leaders, defense ministers and senior security officials attended the three-day conference.

The topics include the future role of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), Iran's nuclear issue and fight against global terrorism.

Munich Conference on Security Policy is an annual event dubbed the "Davos Forum" in the field of security.
