JUBA, Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- Visiting Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi held talks Tuesday with his counterpart in South Sudan Deng Alor Kol, offering proposals for developing relations between China and the newly-established state.

At the beginning of the meeting held in Juba, the capital city of South Sudan, Yang sent Alor warm congratulations on the independence and establishment of the Republic of South Sudan.

The relations between China and South Sudan started well, as leaders of the two countries attached great importance to the development of their ties and mutual respect for and understanding of each other's core concerns, Yang said, expressing China's appreciation for South Sudan's adherence to the one China policy.

China is willing to develop a comprehensive and friendly partnership with South Sudan on the basis of the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence, he said.

China welcomes the embassy of South Sudan to be established in Beijing as soon as possible, Yang said, adding that the two countries should enhance the contacts at all levels to strengthen the mutual political trust, and should set up a legal framework for the exchanges and cooperation in all areas.

China is ready to assist South Sudan in its development and hopes to effectively cooperate with South Sudan in the areas such as energy, agriculture, mining, housing construction, communications, water conservancy and transportation, the minister said.

Yang also suggested to boost the friendly exchanges between the two peoples as well as the two countries' collaboration in the international and regional affairs.

Yang urged South Sudan to maintain peace with Sudan and settle the outstanding issues through dialogue and coordination, saying that a neighborly relationship between the two countries is not only beneficial for the fundamental interests of the two peoples, but also helpful for the lasting peace and stability in the region.

Alor said South Sudan has a traditional friendly relationship with China and hopes that China become the new republic's main partner in its development.
