URUMQI - Chinese Vice Premier Wang Yang met with foreign visitors on the sidelines of the fourth China-Eurasia Expo in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region on Monday.

Hailing the "unprecedented" political trust and comprehensive cooperation between China and Kazakhstan, Wang told Kazakh Prime Minister Karim Masimov that China stands ready to further boost cooperation with Kazakhstan on trade, energy and resources, interconnectivity, law enforcement and security to advance the bilateral ties in a sustained way.

Masimov said that Kazakhstan will work together with China to build the Silk Road economic belt proposed by Chinese President Xi Jinping and make Kazakhstan an important link of the economic belt.

During the meeting with Kyrgyz Prime Minister Zhoomart Otorbayev, Wang said China and Kyrgyzstan should deepen their practical cooperation, especially on natural resources, transportation and agriculture as well as sub-national cooperation in pursuit of common development.

Otorbayev said Kyrgyzstan will firmly support China's efforts to safeguard national security and stability and is willing to cooperate with China more closely.

When meeting with Georgian Deputy Chairman of the Parliament Zviad Dzidziguri, Wang said the Chinese government will encourage capable Chinese companies to invest in Georgia and expand areas of reciprocal cooperation, such as agriculture, tea planting and production, wine trade, infrastructure construction and telecommunications.

Dzidziguri said Georgia looks forward to more investment from and closer cooperation with China.
