China ready to deepen strategic cooperation with Indonesia

BEIJING (Reuters) - China views its relations with Indonesia from a strategic and long-term perspective and stands ready to deepen all-round strategic cooperation with the Southeast Asian nation, Chinese state media said on Monday, citing a meeting between leaders of the countries.

President Xi Jinping told Indonesia's President-elect Prabowo Subianto that China is willing to maintain close contacts, push the two countries' regional integrated economic corridor projects forward, and continue to deepen maritime cooperation.
