China and France have maintained close contact through various means in the past three years, helping the bilateral relationship keep the momentum of positive development and making positive progress in important cooperation, Chinese President Xi Jinping said on Tuesday during his meeting with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Bali, Indonesia.

Noting that at present, the world has entered a new period of turbulence and transformation, Xi said as two important forces in the multipolar world, China and France as well as China and the European Union should adhere to the spirit of independence, openness and cooperation to push bilateral relations for steady progress on the right track, and inject stability and positive energy into the world.

Macron congratulated Xi on his re-election as general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and the all-round success of the 20th National Congress of the CPC.

Both France and China are devoted to promoting peaceful global development and the world's economic prosperity, Macron said.
