LONDON, June 14 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Chief Justice Zhou Qiang believes Sino-British cooperation and exchange in the judicial field could open a new chapter.
Zhou, who is also president of the Supreme People's Court of China, expressed his thoughts during his visit to Britain, which ended Monday.
During the visit, he met with senior British politicians including Lord Neuberger, president of Britain's Supreme Court, and Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond.
Zhou said his visit was designed to help build up the Sino-British global comprehensive strategic partnership for the 21st century, as well as to promote and strengthen judicial exchanges between the two countries and cooperation between their supreme courts.
Lord Neuberger said Zhou's visit could deepen the exchanges and practical cooperation between judicial circles of the two countries and contribute to improving the rule of law in both countries.
Hammond said the visit would help carry the bilateral friendship between the countries forward, by further strengthening mutual exchange and learning in commercial dispute settlement, intellectual property protection and judicial reform.
The two nation's supreme courts signed documents on judicial exchange and cooperation during Zhou's visit.
