BEIJING, April 18 (Xinhua) -- Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Qin Gang held talks with Francisco Bustillo Bonasso, Uruguay's minister of foreign affairs, in Beijing on Tuesday.
Noting that this year marks the 35th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Uruguay, Qin said bilateral relations between the two countries have entered a stage of mature and stable development.
The two sides should further consolidate political mutual trust and deepen practical cooperation, and continue to firmly support each other on issues concerning each other's core interests and major concerns, and take China-Uruguay strategic partnership to a new level, he added.
