BEIJING, July 14 (Xinhua) -- British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Britain hopes to further its relationship with China, as he met with Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi in Beijing Wednesday.

Hague is on his first visit to China since the new British government, a Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition, took office after a general election in May.

The new British government stands ready to develop its relationship with China by continuing the policies of previous British governments, Hague said in the talks with the Chinese Foreign Minister.

The previous British government made a great contribution to Britain's relationship with China, Hague told reporters.

Hague promised to boost the bilateral partnership with increased trade and political cooperation.

The new British government will take the bilateral strategic partnership to a new level, Hague added.

Hague also said Britain recognizes that Tibet and Taiwan are inalienable parts of the Chinese territory.
