After the founding of the People's Republic of China, the friendly exchanges between the older generations of the leaders of the two countries have laid a solid foundation for today's sound development of bilateral relations. China-Indonesia relations are now at a new stage of development. The two countries are both big developing countries and share similar development goals, extensive common interests as well as much common language. Both sides should work together to push for long-term stable development of China-Indonesia comprehensive strategic partnership. It will not only benefit both peoples, but is also conducive to regional and global peace and development.
