Pragmatic cooperation between China and Germany is a guiding factor in the China-Europe relationship and a great example of cooperation by the most important economies in the world, Chinese President Xi Jinping said in a signed article published on Tuesday.

The two sides will join other countries in safeguarding worldwide balance and strategic stability, jointly responding to terrorist threats, promoting political solutions to regional hotspot issues, building an inclusive global economy and making complete the global governance system, he added.

Both leaders discussed strengthening China-EU and China-Germany relations.

In Poland on Thursday ahead of the G-20 summit, Trump said he stood firmly behind the mutual defence commitments of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance and criticised Russian Federation.

Xi's visit to Russian Federation contributed to maintaining the momentum of high-level exchange between the two countries and injected new impetus into the development of bilateral ties, he added.

Xi and Putin also pledged to jointly push for the implementation of the Paris Agreement on climate change and expand China-Russia cultural and people-to-people exchanges.

The two leaders also discussed improving cooperation on cyber security and working more closely together on fighting global terrorism. Merkel said Germany is ready to participate in Xi's Belt and Road initiative to upgrade trade links along the ancient Silk Road across Asia.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel may no longer consider the US under President Donald Trump a "friend," but the European leader is finding a willing new partner in a different, and perhaps unexpected, global superpower: China.

Xi said his country supports a "united, stable, prosperous and open" European Union (EU).

During the visit, the two countries agreed to strengthen support to each other in issues concerning each other's core interests.

We need to harness the coordination role of the High-Level People-to-People Exchange Dialogue Mechanism, deepen cooperation in education, culture, science and technology, tourism, health, think tanks, media, football and other fields, implement visa-related and other facilitation measures and bring our two peoples closer to each other.

Russian Federation has highly praised China's latest shuttle diplomatic efforts with Pakistan and Afghanistan, saying the moves improve the two neighbors' relations and promote the domestic reconciliation in Afghanistan, among all the positive results.
