Dai, the most senior official in charge of the Chinese foreign policy, said China values its relations with Britain.

Chinese-British relations today are in good shape, and has witnessed fresh development since the new British government led by Cameron took office last year, said Dai.

He urged common efforts of both sides to enhance mutual understanding in a bid to bring about breakthrough in their ties.

The Chinese official expressed hopes Britain could play an active role in EU's recognition of China's full market economy status and possible expansion of EU's exports of high-tech products to China.

On the G20 summit which will be held in Cannes, France in November, Dai said that China will strengthen the consultation and cooperation with Britain in the G20 framework.

Britain and China currently enjoys a stage of strong development in their ties, and their relations are deepening and expanding, Cameron said.

Cameron said his country supports an early EU recognition of China's full market economy status and pledged efforts to promote EU-China relations.

Cameron said Chinese economy maintains good momentum, and China is making great contribution to world economy. He hoped the two nations could coordinate their positions in the G20 framework in efforts to promote the growth of the world economy together.

The two sides also exchanged views on other global and regional issues of shared interest including the ongoing European debt crisis.
