BEIJING - Chief of the General Staff of the People's Liberation Army Fang Fenghui held talks with Patrick de Rousiers, chairman of the European Union Military Committee, in Beijing on Friday.

Fang recalled Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit to the EU headquarters in March as injecting new momentum to China-Europe relations.

Acknowledging defense and security cooperation between China and the EU, Fang said China is willing to work with the EU to implement the consensus reached between their leaders and strengthen security dialogue and cooperation in personnel training, overseas peace-keeping missions and maritime escort missions.

De Rousiers hoped his visit would promote bilateral practical cooperation and lift the defense dialogue to a new level.
