BEIJING, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice President Wang Qishan Monday met with the president of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) L. Rafael Reif.
With intertwined interests, mutually-beneficial cooperation between China and the U.S. impacts global prosperity and stability, Wang said.
Stressing the importance of trust, Wang called on the two countries to deepen mutual understanding with each other's history, culture and current development.
"Scientific discovery and technological progress never end. We should make a constant effort to explore our knowledge of nature and society in a deeper and wider way," Wang said.
Saying China's reform and opening-up has facilitated its scientific and educational exchanges with the United States, Wang voiced his hope that MIT will continue to help promote bilateral collaboration in science, technology, education and humanities for healthy, stable China-U.S. ties.
For Reif's part, he said MIT cherishes its cooperative relations with China and is ready to further deepen exchanges with China to play an active role in advancing bilateral relations and friendship between the two peoples.
