China to further education cooperation with Indonesia: Premier Wen

JAKARTA, April 29 (Xinhua) -- China will further boost cooperation in education with Indonesia, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said here Friday during his two-day visit to the country.

When visiting University of Al Azhar Indonesia in Jakarta, the premier joined students in singing an Indonesian folk song after watching them perform folk dances and reciting an ancient Chinese poem.

While every nation should respect different ethnic groups and religions, these various ethnic groups and religions should also respect each other, Wen said.

He complimented Al Azhar University's teaching mode of integrating Islamic doctrine with modern science, saying that practice had already trained a great number of talents who were capable of "meeting the demands of development."

Wen hoped the university would continue to uphold the spirit of openness and inclusiveness, and further step up cooperation and exchanges with Chinese colleges and universities to boost bilateral cultural exchanges.

The premier said youth in China and Indonesia was the foundation and future of the bilateral friendship and he encouraged the Indonesian students to visit China so that they could see for themselves the real China.

Al Azhar University President Zuhal Abdul Kadir said the university would make further efforts to boost cultural exchanges between the two countries to deepen mutual understanding of the two peoples.

As a partner with a number of Chinese universities, Al Azhar University set up a Chinese language center last year and provides Chinese language and culture courses.

Indonesia is Wen's second and last leg of his Southeast Asia tour, which has already taken him to Malaysia.

Visiting Premier Wen Jiabao on Friday broke into an Indonesian folk song after he was greeted with a warm "ni hao (hello)" from students of Al Azhar University in the country's capital.

While visiting the university's Chinese Language Center, Wen said exchanges of young people are the foundation and future of the friendship between the two countries.

"We welcome students to come to China and learn with their brains, hearts and feet so as to be the bridge of the Sino-Indonesian friendship," Wen said.

After about 20 Indonesian girls presented Wen with a well-known Chinese poem of Tang Dynasty - Sailing Early from Baidi Town, the premier began to sing the traditional Indonesian song Ayo Mama to demonstrate that he was familiar with several aspects of Indonesian culture.

"I had come to know this country when I was very young and could hum the tune of such famous Indonesian folk songs as Buteh and Ayo Mama," Wen told Indonesian reporters ahead of his Southeast Asian tour.

Zuhal Abdul Kadir, president of the university, said the Chinese Language Center would be managed to enhance the mutual understanding of the two peoples.

As a partner with a number of Chinese universities, Al Azhar University set up the Chinese Language Center last year to provide Chinese language and culture courses.

China and Indonesia on Friday signed an agreement to boost Chinese-language education in the country, where the language had been censored for over 30 years during the rule of the second Indonesian president, Suharto.

Former president Abdurrahman Wahid began to lift the ban on Chinese culture right after taking office in 1999.

Xu Lin, director-general of Chinese Language Office, said more Indonesian young people, impressed by China's rapid economic growth, rushed to establish commercial contacts with Chinese businessmen.

"They are proud of doing business with Chinese and we have sent more than 100 Chinese teachers every year to Indonesia in the past five years but still cannot meet the demand of the local learners," Xu said.
