China and Brunei on Friday vowed to further military exchanges as a Brunei military officer visits China.
"China is willing to make concerted efforts with Brunei to promote friendly cooperation between the two countries and the two armed forces," said Chinese Defence Minister Liang Guanglie in a meeting with Mohammad Yasmin Umar, Deputy Minister of Defense of Brunei.
"China is grateful for Brunei's adherence to one-China policy," said Liang.
China-Brunei relations have entered a new period of comprehensive development with cooperative potentials, said Liang, who is also a state councillor.
Yasmin, who arrived in Beijing on Thursday, said China has played an important and constructive role in regional and global affairs.
Brunei hoped the two countries would advance bilateral ties on the basis of mutual benefit and mutual trust, Yasmin said.
