Chinese Premier Wen leaves Dhaka.
Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao left Dhaka for Sri Lanka on Friday, ending his two-day visit to Bangladesh.
During his visit, China and Bangladesh agreed to strengthen traditional friendship and further exchanges and cooperation to push forward development of the all-round partnership, according to China's official Xinhua News Agency.
''China and Bangladesh have no big differences, only friendship,'' Wen was quoted as saying in talks with Bangladeshi Prime Minister Khaleda Zia on Thursday.
China decided to award Bangladesh the status of tourist destination country, and set the year of 2005, the 30th anniversary of Sino-Bangladeshi diplomatic ties, as the ''year of friendship,'' Wen said.
After the talks, the two sides signed nine cooperative documents on peaceful use of nuclear energy, economy, agriculture and water resources, with Wen and Zia present at the signing ceremony, Xinhua reported.
