When meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in the western German city of Bonn, Wang said that under the complicated and changing international and regional situations, China and Russia, as comprehensive strategic partners, should support each other, deepen the all-round cooperation and continue their strategically stabilizing roles in the international affairs.

He said that China will work with Britain in reviewing the past experience and mapping future plans for advancing the bilateral relations in 2017, when the two countries celebrate the 45th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations.

He said that the two countries will, by enhancing the high-level exchanges, will keep in track and enrich the contents of the bilateral relations in the "Golden Era" so as to lift to a higher level the "global comprehensive strategic partnership for the 21st century" between the two countries.

Wang said China and Britain should respect each other's core interests and major concerns, promote the cooperation represented by the nuclear power project at Hinkley Point.

The two countries will also join hands in maintaining the global free trade and building an open world economy, said Wang.

Johnson said the two countries share many common interests and should maintain the good momentum of the bilateral relations and expand the British-Chinese cooperation in an innovative way.

Britain will strengthen strategic cooperation with China on international affairs, promote bilateral and global free trade and make the world more stable and prosperous, he said.

Johnson reiterated the British stand on the one-China policy concerning the Taiwan issue and the "one country, two systems" principle in Hong Kong.

He expressed the hope that the EU would as soon as possible honor its commitment made in Article 15 of the protocol on China's accession to the WTO.

She said that the EU will stick to the one-China policy and continue efforts to resolve the problems of performing EU's commitment in Article 15 of the protocol on China's accession to the WTO.
