Chinese Vice President Zeng Qinghong met with Mozambican Foreign Minister Alcinda Abreu on Wednesday in Beijing, vowing to promote bilateral friendly and cooperative ties.
Zeng said China and Mozambique enjoy traditional friendship, which China treasures very much.
China is willing to work with Mozambique to improve the friendship between the two countries, he said.
He said he appreciates the new Mozambican government's efforts in promoting bilateral relations and its adherence to the one-China stance since it was formed last year.
The two countries have made new progress in cooperation in all fields and also kept close consultation and cooperation in international affairs, he said.
The Chinese government will host China-Africa Cooperation Forum in November in Beijing, and it is willing to cooperate with African countries, including Mozambique, to hold a successful meeting and push China-Africa relations forward, Zeng said.
Abreu said the new government of Mozambique is very satisfied with the current friendly relationship with China.
She thanked China for its support and assistance to Mozambique before and after its independence.
The new government will adhere to the one-China stance and is willing to strengthen the cooperation with China in fields such as trade and economy.
She expressed her appreciation of China's initiative in the mechanism of the China-Africa Cooperation Forum, adding that President Armando Emilio Guebuza will attend the forum.
She said she believes the forum will promote Africa-China relations.
Abreu arrived here Tuesday for a visit to China from Aug. 15 to 20, as her counterpart Li Zhaoxing's guest.
