President Mohamed Morsi and his Chinese counterpart Hu Jintao underlined on Tuesday 28/8/2012 the need to enhance cooperation between Egypt and China.

The President said he was pleased to visit China and hailed the Chinese leader and people for their cordial welcome and great hospitality.

In an address during the expanded session of talks held at the Great Hall of the People in central Beijing, Morsi said that the Egyptian people are going through a new phase of renaissance, construction and development after having restored their full freedom and are looking forward to cooperating with their friends. The Chinese people are friends of the Egyptian people, he said.

He underlined keenness on making China his first visit abroad since he assumed his post on June 30 this year.

The Chinese leader, on his part, welcomed Morsi and wished him a good stay in his country along with the Egyptian delegation.

He voiced belief that the visit will push forward bilateral relations and will be a good opportunity for exchanging views on development and various regional and international issues of mutual concern.
