Hu made the remarks as he met with Michael Ignatieff, head of the Canadian Liberal Party, an opposition party in the country. He pointed out that since the two countries established diplomatic ties 40 years ago, they have made huge progress in bilateral relations.

The Chinese president said under the current international situation that is undergoing profound changes, the two countries share broad common interests and foundation for cooperation in such areas as promoting their own economic growths and the world economy, pushing for resolution of regional hotspot issues and addressing global challenges.

Advancing China-Canada relations conforms with the common aspiration of the peoples of both countries, Hu added.

Hu also said his country is ready to work with Canada to perceive and develop bilateral links from a strategic height and with a long-term perspective. He said the two countries should increase exchange of visits by leaders so as to enhance mutual trust. They should also enhance pragmatic cooperation in various areas and carry out close communications and coordination on regional and international issues.

Hu pointed out that the Canadian Liberal Party has actively pursued a friendly policy toward China over the years. China will never forget the important role that the Canadian Liberal Party has played in advancing bilateral links, he said.
