Updated: 2006-02-23 19:21

Chinese President Hu Jintao on Thursday told German Foreign Minister that China will work with Germany to enhance bilateral ties within the framework of Sino-EU strategic partnerships.

Hu spoke highly of Sino-German relations while meeting with visiting German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.

Hu said he appreciates German new government's adherence to the one-China policy and the high priority it gives to relations with China.

Sino-German relations are based on a firm political foundation, Hu said.

Steinmeier said that friendly relations with China are important to Germany and his government will maintain continuity in his country's long-held China policy.

Germany wants to further promote existing close and wide-ranged cooperation with China, as they share a fast growing and vigorous economy, he said.

The two sides also exchanged views on major international issues.

Steinmeier arrived here on Wednesday for a two-day official visit to China as guest of his Chinese counterpart Li Zhaoxing.
