The Chinese side congratulates Indonesia on smoothly holding legislative and presidential elections and hopes to see the continuation of prosperity and stability in Indonesia. China will work in concert with Indonesia to push for the in-depth growth of China-Indonesia comprehensive strategic partnership.

Wang Yi pointed out that among all the dialogue partners of ASEAN, China is the one that attaches the greatest importance and offers the most support to ASEAN. It also inputs the most and puts forth the largest amount of cooperation proposals. Cooperation between China and ASEAN has facilitated the development of relations between ASEAN and other major countries. That is because China firmly upholds the policy of good-neighborliness and amity. That is also because China's diplomacy is based in developing countries. The growth of ASEAN will be conducive to world multipolarization and the balancing of international strength. We hope that Indonesia will play a bigger role in advancing China-ASEAN relations.

Foreign Minister Marty said that China is an important force in safeguarding regional peace, prosperity and stability. Indonesia and China share broad common interests and commonalities. It is held by all circles of Indonesia that we should promote the comprehensive strategic partnership between the two countries. The Indonesian side will make joint efforts with China to ensure the continuity of bilateral relations. The Indonesian side highly values the precious support from China to ASEAN and will work in coordination with China in developing ASEAN-China relations.

The two sides agreed that China and ASEAN should move forward the process of fully and effectively implementing the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea and consultation on the code of conduct in the South China Sea, and work hand in hand to uphold peace and stability of the South China Sea.
