Visiting Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi held talk with his Indonesian counterpart Marty Natalagewa on Thursday at Indonesian Foreign Ministry in Jakarta on boosting the two countries' bilateral ties.

Wang Yi said in a press conference held after their closed-door meeting that reflection of "strategic" at bilateral, regional and global levels is the most distinct characteristic of the China- Indonesia relation.

As strategic partners, the bilateral relationship between the two countries still has much room and potential to develop, he added.

Both sides should strengthen strategic communication and cooperation, deepen mutually beneficial cooperation in all aspects in an all-round way, fully tap the energy and potential in the China-Indonesia relationship, so as to benefit the two countries and their people as well as contribute to the peace and development in the region and the world, said Wang Yi.

Both sides agreed that the two countries should continue to maintain high-level exchanges, expand bilateral trade and investment, strengthen maritime cooperation and play a leading role in the region, deepen the cooperation in defense and security, expand cultural exchanges and increase their coordination in international organizations.

China would also fully support Indonesia in holding the 2013 APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting.

At the invitation of several ASEAN foreign ministers, Wang Yi started his first working visit since he was appointed as China's new foreign minister. After Indonesia, he is scheduled to visit Singapore and Brunei.
