On the afternoon of September 12, local time, Chinese Vice Premier Hui Liangyu, who is on an official visit to Uzbekistan, met with Uzbek Prime Minister Shavkat Mirziyaev.

Hui first conveyed Premier Wen Jiabao's cordial greetings and good wishes to Prime Minister Mirziyaev. China-Uzbekistan relations had entered a brand-new phase since the two countries established diplomatic ties 20 years ago, said Hui. The China-Uzbekistan strategic partnership, forged in June during a visit by Uzbek President Islam Karimov to China, further boosted the China-Uzbekistan relations to a new development era, Hui said. He said his current visit to Uzbekistan was aimed at further advancing bilateral cooperation and implementing the important consensus reached between the heads of state of the two countries.

Both countries valued their relationship and regarded each other as good partners and sincere brothers, Hui said, noting the establishment of the bilateral strategic partnership was a choice complying with the general trend of the time and met the interests of the peoples of both countries.

Appreciating Uzbekistan's friendly policies towards China, Hui said China was willing to work with Uzbekistan to expand bilateral pragmatic cooperation and push ahead with the strategic partnership. To that end, Hui suggested the two countries, first of all, should implement various consensuses and agreements reached between the leaders of the two countries and then make full use of the inter-governmental cooperation committee between the two countries. Meanwhile, the two countries should innovate their cooperation patterns to expand the cooperation realm and achieve a win-win and sustainable cooperation, Hui said. The two sides can strengthen cooperation in the areas of economy, trade, investment, infrastructure construction and agriculture. China is ready to work with the Uzbek side to actively explore cooperation in building agricultural demonstration zones and using solar energy. China is also willing to cooperate with Uzbekistan within the framework of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.

Mirziyaev extended warm welcome to Hui for his visit and asked Hui to convey his cordial greetings and good wishes to Premier Wen. Mirziyaev said the two countries are reliable partners to each other. Uzbekistan upheld peace-oriented external policies, stuck to the one-China policy, and supported China's pursuit of a good neighborhood and friendship with its neighboring countries as well as its efforts to fight the three evil forces of extremism, terrorism and separatism, Mirziyaev said. Appreciating China's vigorous economic and political support to Uzbekistan, Mirziyaev hoped to deepen cooperation with China in various fields, including political affairs, security, trade, investment, transportation, agriculture and culture. Uzbekistan is also ready to enhance cooperation with China within the SCO framework.
