MADRID, May 24 (Xinhua) -- China and Spain on Thursday pledged to step up their parliamentary exchanges in a bid to facilitate the comprehensive and strategic partnership between the two countries.
The pledge was made during talks between China's top legislator Wu Bangguo and President of the Spanish Congress Jesus Posada.
Wu, chairman of the Standing Committee of China's National People's Congress (NPC), arrived in Madrid Wednesday on a six-day official goodwill visit to Spain.
Wu noted that the two parliaments should carry out substantial exchanges on governing a state, global financial system reform and dialogue among different civilizations to increase mutual understanding and reach more consensus.
"We can talk about issues we both agree on, and issues we have differences on," said Wu.【1】 【2】
