Strengthening cooperation between China and Mexico will help promote South-South cooperation, which is also conducive to safeguarding world peace and stability, a senior Chinese legislator said.
During meetings with Mexican parliament leaders, Jiang Enzhu, director of the Foreign Affairs Committee of China's National People's Congress (NPC), said strengthening the mutually beneficial cooperation between China and Mexico serves the interests of both peoples.
Jiang met separately with Senate President Santiago Creel and Ruth Zavaleta, president of the Chamber of Deputies, on Thursday and Friday.
The NPC is ready to boost exchanges and dialogue with Mexico's parliament to foster public support for the China-Mexico friendship and push forward the strategic partnership between the two countries, Jiang said.
Giving a highly positive assessment of the development of bilateral relations since the two countries established diplomatic ties 35 years ago, Creel and Zavaleta said Mexico and China share broad common interests despite their different historical and cultural backgrounds.
Creel and Zavaleta also expressed the hope that the legislatures of the two countries will expand exchanges.
They also reiterated the Mexican parliament's continued adherence to the one-China policy.
