JAKARTA, Nov. 9 (Xinhua) -- Top legislator Wu Bangguo said here on Tuesday that his visit to Indonesia is aimed at elevating bilateral legislative cooperation to a new level.

"One of my key purposes during the visit is to upgrade the ties between the two legislatures ... so as to inject new momentum into the comprehensive and further development of the overall bilateral ties," Wu, chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress of China, the country's top legislature, said during meeting with Taufiq Kiemas, chairman of the People Consultative Assembly (MPR) of Indonesia.

Highly evaluating the current China-Indonesian relations, Wu said both countries have been rendering support to major issues related to each other's core interests and sticking to the policy of common development, mutual benefit and win-win result.

In dealing with international affairs, both sides have been standing up for what's right and maintaining peace, Wu noted.

Wu pointed out that a country's legislators represent the people and its legislature reflects public opinion. Though China and Indonesia have different political system, yet it does not block the friendly exchanges and cooperation between the two countries' legislatures.

For his part, Taufiq said different circles of Indonesia hold the same position in developing ties with China and the MPR actively supports the Indonesian government to further ties with China.

He hoped to enhance the friendly ties with the National People' s Congress of China. Wu arrived in Indonesia on Saturday for an official visit.
