Li Changchun, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, made the pledge during his meeting with former French Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin and General Secretary of the Union for a Popular Movement (UPM) Jean-Francois Cope in Beijing.

Li recalled Chinese President Hu Jintao's visit to France last month, saying it indicates Chinese-French relations have reached a new high.

As permanent members of the Security Council of the United Nations and members of the Group of 20, China and France share common interests and bright prospects for cooperation, he said.

Li applauded the close contact between the CPC and UPM, saying the CPC will bolster exchange with UPM, especially between young politicians.

The French guests hailed French-Chinese ties and cooperation and pledged to work for closer cooperation and exchange.
