BEIJING, June 17 (Xinhua) -- Top Chinese legislator Wu Bangguo said here Thursday that the country would work with Pakistan to promote a strategic cooperative partnership between the two neighbors.

"We should work together to deepen bilateral cooperation in defense security and other sectors," Wu, chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), said when meeting with Pakistani Chief of Army Staff Ashfaq Parvez Kayani.

Hailing the good-neighborly friendship between the two nations, Wu said the bilateral all-weather friendship and all-round cooperation accorded with the fundamental interests of the two peoples and played an important role in safeguarding regional peace and promoting common development.

Wu also spoke highly of the fruitful exchanges and cooperation between the two armed forces, saying that the joint anti-terrorist cooperation in combatting the "East Turkistan Islamic Movement," a terrorist group, indicated that China-Pakistan relations were strategically on track.

Kayani said Pakistan was ready to seek stronger relationship with China.

Kayani was here on a 5-day official visit.
