Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao met on Thursday afternoon with Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi, who is in Beijing to attend the Asia-Europe summit scheduled for Oct. 24 to 25.

Berlusconi said Italy hopes to continue the good cooperation with China to advance the relationship towards comprehensive development.


He said he admired China's great development achievements in recent years, and congratulated China's success in the Beijing Olympic Games and the Shenzhou 7 manned space flight mission.


Berlusconi arrived in Beijing Thursday afternoon to attend the seventh Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM).
