A senior leader of the Communist Party of China (CPC) said Thursday that party-to-party relations between China and Mongolia constitute an important aspect of bilateral ties between the two countries.
He Guoqiang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, made the remark at a meeting with Ulambayar Barsbold, secretary of the Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party (MPRP).
He arrived here earlier Thursday for a goodwill visit to Mongolia, which is aimed at deepening China's relations with its neighbor, when the two nations mark the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties this year.
The leader said China-Mongolia relations are standing at an all-time high. Because of that, he said, the CPC and the MPRP should take the opportunity to deepen friendly exchanges between the two parties in all fields.
The Chinese leader, also secretary of the CPC's Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, proposed that both sides maintain inter-party high-level visits and enhance their mutual trust.
The members of both parties, He said, should step up exchanges, learn from each other and cement their friendship. He said inter-party exchanges should strive for friendship between the two peoples.
Barsbold echoed He's appraisal and proposals on CPC-MPRP relations, saying his party would like to work with the CPC to make positive contributions to ties between the two countries.
Also Thursday, He unveiled a photo exhibition as a part of a series of activities marking the 60th anniversary of China-Mongolia relations.
Mongolia is the last leg of He's fortnight tour that has taken him to Egypt, Spain and Jordan.
