China's top political adviser Jia Qinglin has met with Oman's Sultan Qaboos bin Saeed in Nizwa city, 140 kilometers from the capital Muscat. Sunday's meeting came during an official good-will visit to promote the bilateral relations between the two countries.

Jia Qinglin proposed that the two sides continue to strengthen political cooperation and expand exchanges between governments, provinces and cities. He added that China and Oman should increase bilateral trade, encourage two-way investment, and promote other cooperation in various fields.

Qaboos echoed Jia's call, saying his country will help promote China's relations with the Arab states, and members of the Gulf Cooperation Council. Jia later met with members of the Oman-China Friendship Association, which was established on Sunday. He said, he hoped the association would keep close contact with its counterpart in China and become an important envoy between the two countries.
