HEFEI, April 4 (Xinhua) -- Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi held talks with Panamanian Foreign Minister Erika Mouynes on Monday in Tunxi, east China's Anhui Province.

Wang said that since China and Panama officially established diplomatic relations five years ago based on the affirmation of the one-China principle, bilateral ties have ushered in a new chapter.

China is willing to take the fifth anniversary of diplomatic relations as an opportunity to facilitate political mutual trust, pragmatic cooperation, people-to-people exchanges and multilateral coordination, to foster more propellers of China-Panama friendly ties, Wang said.

Noting that facts have proved that the establishment of diplomatic ties between Panama and China was the correct decision, Mouynes said that Panama values mutual trust with China and will firmly adhere to the one-China principle.

The two sides also exchanged views on the Ukraine issue, among other issues.
