Chinese president Xi Jinping met visiting German chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday evening in Beijing.

The two sides have agreed to maintain a sound, stable and sustained comprehensive strategic partnership.

Xi Jinping called on China and Germany to consolidate trust, accommodate their respective core interests and major concerns, and achieve new progress.

He urged Germany to help facilitate China-EU personnel exchanges and speed up negotiation on a China-EU investment treaty.

Merkel in turn vowed to boost bilateral trade, industrial and financial cooperation, and participate in the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank.

Earlier Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and Merkel witnessed the signing of 13 cooperation agreements, including a deal for China to buy 130 aircraft from Airbus.

With a list price of 17 billion U.S. dollars, it is one of the largest orders China has ever placed with the European aviation giant.
