Vanuatuan Prime Minister Ham Lini stressed the one-China policy Saturday while meeting Wang Jiarui, head of the International Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee.
Lini, also president of Vanuatu's National United Party, said his party firmly supported the one-China policy in last November when former Vanuatuan Prime Minister Serge Vohor tried to set up official relations with Taiwan by signing a formal diplomatic recognition agreement with Taiwan.
He said the Vanuatuan National United Party and government will continue to abide by the one-China policy, which is also the common consensus of the ruling coalition parties.
Lini said he hoped Vanuatu-China ties will develop smoothly and the relations between the two parties will be further improved.
Wang said the Chinese people have always been friendly to Vanuatu and to improve bilateral relations benefits the two peoples.
He said the CPC is willing to improve communication and cooperation with all Vanuatuan parties in line with the important political foundation of the one-China policy, and to further boost China-Vanuatu relations.
He also briefed Lini on China's principles on the Taiwan issue.
