Senior Cuban, Chinese officials meet to discuss ties
A senior Cuban official and Chen Fengxiang, deputy head of the International Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, on Friday spoke highly of the bilateral friendship.
Ricardo Alarcon, member of the political bureau of the central committee of the Communist Party of Cuba, told Chen at their meeting that both countries witnessed an expansion of exchange in politics, economy, trade, culture and personnel, and strengthened mutual understanding and friendship in recent years.
Cuba appreciated and admired China's role in implementing its international responsibilities, saying that China could continue to play such an important role in dealing with international affairs, said Alarcon, also president of the National Assembly of People's Power.
Chen, who was leading a goodwill delegation of the CPC for a visit here, spoke highly of the achievements made by Cuba during its period of socialist construction.
He said the experiences Cuba's communist party accumulated in uniting its countrymen and conducting socialist construction could serve as an important reference for China.
He hoped that both parties could strengthen exchange, learn from each other and help each other move forward on their way to achieve common development goals.
