Beijing and London are hoped to further champion the global free-trade system and shape a world economy of openness, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Thursday.
He made the remarks when meeting with his British counterpart Boris Johnson on the sidelines of the Group of Twenty (G20) foreign ministerial meeting held in the German city of Bonn.
Johnson said Britain is willing to strengthen strategic cooperation with China on international affairs and jointly promote bilateral and global free trade to enhance stability and prosperity.
China is ready to further promote the flagship cooperative programs between the two countries, including the Hinkley Point nuclear project, Wang said.
Also, Johnson reassured Wang that London subscribes to the one-China policy, and said there will be no change in the British position of upholding the "one China, two systems" policy in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
This year marks the 45th anniversary of the establishment of ambassadorial-level diplomatic relations between China and Britain.
Wang said Beijing would like to work with London to boost high-level exchanges and promote the value of the two-way ties in the "golden age".
