News Analysis: Hollande's visit to boost China-France ties (2)


19:34, April 23, 2013


The primary goal of Hollande's visit to China is to enhance mutual political trust, and build friendships between the new leaders of the two countries, analysts said.

As Xi said earlier, the development of China-France ties will benefit the two nations and their people. It will also contribute to creating a new cooperative win-win mode between developed countries and emerging economies and developing nations.

Furthermore, the development of China-France ties will also help promote China-Europe relations as a whole and push forward multipolarity of the world and democratization of international relations, Xi added.

In the telephone conversation with Xi last month, Hollande said both France and China, as permanent members of the UN Security Council, advocate global multipolarity and share the same or similar positions on many major issues.

China plays a significant role in promoting world peace, stability and development, and France is determined to strengthen the comprehensive relations of strategic partnership between the two sides, Hollande said.

Hollande's trip as the first head of state from a major Western country to visit Beijing since China's new leadership took office reflects the depth of France-China ties, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said.

He said Holland's visit will inject fresh impetus to the development of France-China relation.
