LONDON -- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said Sunday here that enhancing communication and cooperation between the world's big powers is particularly important in face of a variety of global challenges.

Wen expressed his opinion when holding respective meetings with former British prime ministers Tony Blair and Gordon Brown.

Lauding the contributions that the two former British leaders have made in boosting Sino-British relations, Wen invited them to visit China in the future and wished that they could continue playing their part in promoting mutual understanding and cooperation between the two countries.

China's support to Britain and Europe is not merely in words, but in concrete actions, Wen noted, adding that he brought with him sincerity and hope in the visit.

China is willing to comprehensively deepen its exchanges and cooperation with Britain and Europe on the basis of mutual respect and equality, the premier said.

It is in the fundamental interests of both sides and contributes to world peace, stability and development, he added.
