OTTAWA, June 24 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Hu Jintao on Thursday called for the all-round development of the China-Canada strategic partnership, saying a "sound, stable, positive and growing" relationship serves the interests of both countries, the Asia-Pacific region and the world at large.

Speaking at the banquet hosted in his honor by Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Ottawa, Hu said the growing China-Canada relationship has brought concrete benefits to the two peoples and contributed significantly to peace, stability and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.

Though national conditions of China and Canada differ, there exists no conflict of fundamental interests between the two countries, and their common interests far outweigh their differences, Hu said.

"As long as we both adhere to the principles of mutual respect, equality, mutual benefit and seeking common ground while reserving differences, as long as we keep to the right direction of bilateral relations, we will make our relationship a model for relations between countries different in social systems and level and model of development," he said.

Hu, who is currently on a state visit to Canada, put forward proposals in his speech for the promotion of the all-round development of the China-Canada strategic partnership, which was set up in 2005.
