Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao on Tuesday pledged to promote bilateral ties and cooperation with Indonesia during his upcoming visit to the Southeast Asian state.

During a half-hour meeting with visiting Indonesian Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa, Wen said the Chinese government attaches great importance to its strategic partnership with Indonesia.

"It's an important direction for China's diplomacy to develop long-term, steady, good-neighborly and friendly cooperative ties with Indonesia, which is a good neighbor and partner of China," Wen said.

Wen is expected to visit Indonesia in the coming weeks, but the date and details of the visit are not yet available.

"I hope to push bilateral ties and cooperation in various fields between China and Indonesia to a new level through this visit," Wen told Marty at Zhongnanhai, the headquarters for the central government in downtown Beijing.

Marty said his country also attaches great importance to its relations with China.

Indonesia will enhance cooperation in the sectors of infrastructure construction, trade, economy, investment and finance with China to bolster bilateral ties, he said.
