Premier Wen Jiabao on Wednesday said China would work with Vietnam to push forward the bilateral comprehensive strategic partnership of cooperation.

Wen made the remark during talks with visiting Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung who was here for a six-day official visit and for the seventh summit of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) on Oct. 24-25.

Wen said China and Vietnam, as important neighbors for each other, enjoyed broad common interests in safeguarding regional peace and development. The traditional friendship between the two peoples was a precious treasure for both sides, he noted.

China valued the relations with Vietnam, and was ready to increase mutual trust and deepen cooperation with the country, so as to benefit the two peoples.

To enhance bilateral economic and trade cooperation was of important significance for the two nations to deal with the current international financial crisis, and to maintain each other's domestic economic growth.

Wen hoped the two nations would exert the role of the existing mechanism to closely cooperate with each other to carry out the economic cooperation program, and to increase cooperation in agriculture, fishery, transport infrastructure, energy, trade and investment.

The two nations should try to establish a balanced and sustainable trade relation, and enhance information exchanges and policy coordination to jointly prevent the financial risks, he noted.

Wen hoped related organs from both nations would soon solve the issues concerning demarcation on a land boundary to jointly safeguard the security and border harmony.

Dung said Vietnam valued its friendship with China, and firmly adhered to the policy to develop the bilateral comprehensive strategic partnership of cooperation.

Vietnam was ready to work with China to maintain the high level visits, increase exchanges between the two nations' organs of foreign relations, defense, and law enforcement, and expand cooperation in economy, trade, investment, infrastructure construction, tourism and culture.

Dung said Vietnam hoped to enhance cooperation with China to jointly respond to the international financial crisis.

Vietnam would properly solve the boundary issue in line with the spirit of mutual respect and friendly coordination, he noted.

The two nations signed a series of agreements covering the establishment of a hotline between the two governments, and the bilateral cooperation in economy, trade, sanitation and quarantine, people-to-people exchanges and energy areas.

The two prime ministers attended the signing ceremony of the agreements.
