Chinese Top Legislator Meets Paraguayan Delegation
Li, chairman of the Standing Committee of China's National People's Congress, made these remarks Monday afternoon in Beidaihe in a meeting with a delegation from the Paraguayan Senate led by its Vice-President Luis M. Guanes Gondra.
Extending a welcome to the delegation, Li noted that China and Paraguay, both developing countries, have had similar historical experiences and the two peoples have strived hard for national independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity.
They also face the task of developing their economies, added Li.
Reiterating the Chinese government's basic position on the Taiwan issue, Li expressed his appreciation for the Paraguayan parliamentarians' concerns over and efforts for developing Sino- Paraguayan relations, and the hope that they will, taking the fundamental interests of the two peoples into consideration, continue to make efforts to push forward the normalization of bilateral ties.
On China's diplomatic policy, Li noted that China supports the evolution of a multi-polar world, hoping that Latin American countries can play an important role in this process.
On China's domestic situation, Li briefed the delegation on China's economic development, the people's congress system, the multi-party cooperation led by the Communist Party of China and the political consultation system.
He said he hopes that more Paraguayan parliament members can come to China so as to enhance understanding and friendship.
Guanes said that they came afar from Paraguay to China, a great country, with admiration and respect in a bid to learn more about China.
He noted that failing to establish and develop relations with such an influential country as China is against the world trend.
As parliament members, they bear the responsibility for developing bilateral ties and hope to promote exchanges and cooperation with China, said Guanes.
The delegation members are here as guests of the China Zhi Gong Party (Public Interest Party).
