Top Chinese leaders met visiting African leaders yesterday to consolidate bilateral ties in the wake of the two-day Beijing Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Co-operation.

President Hu Jintao separately met South African President Thabo Mbeki and Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, who attended the Beijing summit before beginning their state visits.

Hu and Mbeki agreed that the two countries would work together to promote the development of a new China-Africa strategic partnership and enhance co-ordination and collaboration in international affairs.

The development of bilateral relations has been comprehensive and rapid since the two countries established diplomatic ties nine years ago, Hu said.

The two presidents reached consensus on a long-term and stable strategic partnership on the basis of equality, mutual benefit and common development.

Hu made four proposals to that effect:

The two sides enhance political trust and strategic consultation; and maintain high-level contacts.

Based on complementary strengths, they raise trade and economic co-operation to new heights.

Increase diplomatic consultation and enhance co-ordination and collaboration.

Increase personnel and cultural exchanges.

Hu also voiced appreciation for South Africa's adherence to the one-China policy and active support to China's reunification.

Mbeki said South Africa welcomes Chinese enterprises to bid for the construction of stadiums for the 2010 World Cup in his country.

Hu and his Algerian counterpart Bouteflika signed a statement on developing strategic co-operative relations after their talks, and witnessed the signing of seven other agreements.

They include an extradition treaty and agreements on criminal judicial assistance, bilateral economic and technological co-operation and civil aviation.

Hu said that the two countries should enhance political friendship and deepen co-operation, especially in infrastructure construction, communications and telecommunication sectors.

The two sides should expand their exchanges in public health, science and technology, culture, tourism and human resources training, said Hu, noting that Algeria has been designated an approved destination for Chinese tour groups.

Bouteflika told Hu that Algeria wants strategic co-operation with China in investment, trade, agriculture, water conservancy, culture, and science and technology sectors.

Hu also separately met Benin President Thomas Boni Yayi, Togo President Faure Gnassingbe, Eritrean President Isaias Afewerki, Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe and Nigerian President Mamadou Tandja.

All the leaders expressed their appreciation for the China-African summit, which they believe reflects China's genuine friendship and bring benefits to African people.

High-ranking Chinese leaders, including top legislator Wu Bangguo, Premier Wen Jiabao and chairman of the country's top political advisory body Jia Qinglin, also met some African leaders yesterday.

Premier Wen said that China understands the concerns of African countries on textile trade and is making unremitting efforts for the balanced development of textile trade in the world.
