A senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC) on Monday commended the all-round ties between China and Sudan.
"China and Sudan have continuously expanded cooperation in politics, economy, science and culture since they forged diplomatic ties in 1959," Li Changchun, member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, told visiting Deputy Chairman for Political Affairs of National Congress of Sudan Nafi'a Ali Nafi'a.
The two countries have kept close coordination and cooperation in international affairs, Li said.
China appreciates that the Sudanese government has always supported China on the issues of Taiwan and human rights, Li said.
"I believe the China-Sudan relations will be further developed with our joint efforts," Li said.
Noting the sound inter-party relationship helps promote the China-Sudan ties, Li said the CPC would like to beef up cooperation with the National Congress of Sudan.
He also briefed the guest on China's policy of developing new China-Africa partnership.
Nafi'a said Sudan-China cooperation in various fields has brought substantial benefits to the two peoples.
Sudan will, as always, back China's reunification cause and oppose "Taiwan's independence" of various forms, Nafi'a said.
