Chinese President Xi Jinping on Tuesday held talks with visiting Indonesian President Joko Widodo in Beijing. In a cordial and friendly atmosphere, the two heads of state had a comprehensive and in-depth exchange of views on China-Indonesia relations and international and regional issues of common concern, and reached a series of important consensuses.

 

Xi pointed out that you are the first foreign head of state received by China after the Beijing Winter Olympics, which fully reflects that both sides attach great importance to developing Sino-Indonesian relations. In recent years, under our joint guidance, China-Indonesia relations have flourished, demonstrating strong resilience and vitality. The strategic mutual trust between the two sides has been consolidated day by day, and the "four-wheel drive" cooperation pattern of political, economic, cultural and maritime cooperation has been deepened. They have shown their responsibility and positive achievements in maintaining regional peace and stability and promoting world unity and cooperation, and set a good example for large developing countries to unite for self-improvement and mutual benefit. Facts have proved that developing China-Indonesia relations not only conforms to the common long-term interests of both countries, but also has a positive and far-reaching impact at the regional and global levels. At present, the Chinese people are marching towards the goal of building a strong socialist modernization country in an all-round way in the second century, and the Indonesian people are also actively striving to achieve the centennial goal of the founding of the People's Republic of China in 2045. I would like to work with you to continue to lead China-Indonesia relations to be stable and far-reaching from a strategic and long-term perspective, so as to better benefit the two peoples and make greater contributions to regional and world peace and stability.

 

Xi emphasized that China and Indonesia have similar development stages, linked common interests, shared ideas and paths, and their future and destiny are at stake. Building a community of destiny between China and Indonesia is the common aspiration and expectation of the two peoples. I am glad that both sides have established the general direction of building a community of destiny. China is willing to take this as a guide with Indonesia, consolidate strategic mutual trust, firmly support each other in safeguarding sovereignty, security and development interests, firmly support each other in exploring development paths in line with their national conditions, and firmly support each other in developing economy and improving people's living standards. The two sides should push forward the high-quality cooperation in building the "the belt and road initiative" and bear more fruits. Strive to build the Jakarta-Bandung Highspeed Railway with high quality on schedule, and implement major cooperation projects such as "Regional Comprehensive Economic Corridor" and "Double Parks between the Two Countries". China will continue to fully support Indonesia in building a regional vaccine production center and close public health cooperation, and is willing to continue to expand imports of Indonesian bulk commodities and high-quality agricultural and sideline products. China is willing to actively participate in the construction of Indonesia's new capital and North Kalimantan Industrial Park, expand development financing cooperation, and foster new growth points in the fields of digital economy and green development.

 

Xi pointed out that the current changes in the world are unfolding in an unprecedented way. China and Indonesia should help each other in the same boat, demonstrate the responsibility of big developing countries, practice true multilateralism, adhere to open regionalism, and provide oriental wisdom and contribute Asian strength to promoting global governance. China fully supports Indonesia in hosting the Bali Summit of G20 Leaders, and is willing to strengthen coordination and cooperation with Indonesia to ensure the success of the Summit. China will also fully support Indonesia as the rotating presidency of ASEAN next year, and is willing to strengthen unity and cooperation with ASEAN, focus on the construction of the "Five Homes", and continuously release new kinetic energy of China-ASEAN comprehensive strategic partnership. China welcomes Indonesia's continued active participation in BRICS + cooperation, appreciates Indonesia's support and emphasis on global development initiatives and global security initiatives, and is willing to strengthen communication and cooperation with Indonesia in this regard.

 

Joco said that I would like to wish the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China a complete success and believe that under the strong leadership of President Xi, China will make greater achievements in the future. Indonesia and China are comprehensive strategic partners and have set the important goal of building a community of destiny. Mutual cooperation is mutually beneficial and win-win, which not only brings benefits to the two peoples, but also makes important contributions to regional and world peace and development. Under the current uncertain international situation, the good cooperation between Indonesia and China reflects the strategic nature of bilateral relations and is positive energy for the region and the world. Indonesia is willing to work with China to continuously deepen the comprehensive strategic partnership between the two countries and make greater contributions to promoting regional peace and global development. Indonesia admires China's outstanding achievements in poverty alleviation and is willing to learn from China's successful experience. We welcome China's active participation in the construction of Indonesia's new capital and North Kalimantan Green Industrial Park, strengthen the strategic connection between the concept of "global ocean fulcrum" and the initiative of jointly building the "the belt and road initiative", and deepen cooperation in investment, technology, vaccines, medical and health care and other fields. Jakarta-Bandung Highspeed Railway is a symbol of Indonesia's rapid development, and Indonesia is willing to make joint efforts with China to ensure that the Jakarta-Bandung Highspeed Railway is completed and put into operation on time, making it another monument of friendship between the two countries. Thanks to China for supporting Indonesia in its presidency of the G20, Indonesia is willing to coordinate closely with China to promote the success of the G20 Leaders' Bali Summit. As the rotating presidency of ASEAN next year, Indonesia is willing to make active efforts for the development of ASEAN-China relations.

 

The two heads of state also exchanged views on the Ukrainian crisis and other issues, holding that the international community should create conditions for persuading peace and promoting talks, play a constructive role in easing and cooling the situation in Ukraine, stabilizing the global economic order, and jointly safeguard the hard-won regional peace and stability.

 

The two sides issued the Joint Press Statement on the Meeting between the Heads of State of the People's Republic of China and the Republic of Indonesia, and signed a memorandum of understanding on jointly promoting cooperation between the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road Initiative and the concept of "Global Ocean Fulcrum", as well as cooperation documents in the fields of vaccines, green development, network security and ocean.
