On March 25 local time, President Xi Jinping met with Prime Minister David Cameron of the United Kongdom in the Netherlands.

Xi Jinping said, Mr. Prime Minister's successful visit to China last December opened a new chapter for China-UK relationship. Hope that both sides could continue our joint efforts, on the basis of mutual respect and care for each other's major concerns, keeping high-level exchanges, giving full play to mechanisms like the Annual China-UK Prime Ministers' Meeting and China-UK Strategic Dialogue, to strengthen communication and cooperation. Both sides should set up flagship projects in the fields of nuclear power, high-speed rail, high technology and finance, deepen communication and cooperation in education, scien-tech, media and others, and facilitate personnel exchanges. China attaches importance to the role the UK plays in the European Union, and hopes that UK will play a leading part in promoting the feasibility research of China-EU Free Trade Area.

Cameron said that the British side is committed to the development of UK-China relationship and is willing to make joint efforts with the Chinese side to ensure positive results from exchanges of bilateral high-level visits and various kinds of dialogue mechanisms, and the success of major investment projects. The British side supports an early signing of an EU-China investment agreement and is willing to play a positive role in the process of promoting EU-China Free Trade Area.

Wang Huning, Li Zhanshu, Yang Jiechi and others were present at the meeting.
