BEIJING, May 22 (Xinhua) -- Vice President Xi Jinping met with visiting Israeli Defense Force Chief of Staff Benny Gantz on Tuesday, calling on the militaries of both countries to boost cooperation and promote bilateral relations.

Xi said friendly and cooperative relations between China and Israel serve not only the fundamental interests of the two countries and two peoples, but also regional peace and stability.

Xi said the relationship between the two armed forces, as an important component of bilateral relations, has maintained stable growth in recent years.

Both militaries should make greater efforts to cooperate and learn from each other, Xi said.

Gantz said the Israeli armed forces will make concerted efforts with the Chinese side to promote ties between the two armies and nations.
