Chinese President Hu Jintao Sunday exchanged messages of congratulation with his Bulgarian counterpart Georgi Parvanov and Romanian counterpart Traian Basescu to mark the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between their countries.

In the message to Parvanov, Hu said the past 60 years had witnessed sincere respect, friendly cooperation, as well as ever-strengthening and ever-deepening traditional friendship between the two countries.

It had been proved that strengthening relations on the basis of long-term stabilization, equality and mutual benefit served the interests of the two peoples, and would be conducive to regional peace and development, he said.

China would join hands with Bulgaria to reinforce exchanges, expand cooperation and forge bilateral ties into the future, Hu pledged.

For his part, President Parvanov said Bulgaria had attached great importance to the traditional friendship between the two countries and highly valued the all-round cooperative partnership with China.

In August 2008, the two presidents met in Beijing, which Parvanov believed had yielded fruitful results.

Bulgaria expected to make joint efforts with China on enriching bilateral cooperation in all fields and promoting healthy and steady development of bilateral ties in the long run, he said.

In the messages to Basescu, President Hu said that, during the past 60 years, despite great changes in the two countries and in the international situation, China-Romania relations had maintained healthy and steady development.

In 2004, China and Romania established all-round friendly cooperative relations which brought vitality and energy to the bilateral ties in the new century, Hu said.

Standing on a new historical starting point, China hoped to work with Romania on further enhancing traditional friendship and promoting the all-round friendly cooperative relations for the benefit of the two countries and the two peoples, he added.

Basescu said the traditional friendship between the two nations had strengthened and become mature since they forged diplomatic relations 60 years ago. It was the great treasure of the two peoples.

He reiterated that the Romanian government had made it one of its top priorities in diplomatic policies to strengthening the all-round friendly cooperative relations with China.

Romania expected to increase high-level contacts, enlarge pragmatic cooperation with China and to push forward the sustainable development of bilateral ties in the 21st century, Basescu said.
