Relations between Cuban and Chinese parliaments are "at their best," said president of the Cuban Parliament Ricardo Alarcon during meeting with visiting Chinese lawmaker Uyunqimg in Havana Monday.

During the meeting, Uyunqimg, Vice Chairperson of the Standing Committee of China's National People's Congress, spoke highly of recent development in bilateral parliamentary ties and called for further efforts to boost these ties.

Uyunqimg said China-Cuba relations had entered "a new era," as the two countries marked the 50th anniversary of their diplomatic ties this year.

The two countries have been reliable friends to each other, sharing support in each other's economic development as well as in international affairs, she said.

Alarcon expressed thanks for China's longtime support and economic aid to Cuba and congratulated on China's successful hosting of the Beijing Olympics and the Shanghai World Expo.

He reaffirmed Cuba's support for China's efforts in seeking peaceful reunification.

Uyunqimg arrived here on Saturday for a three-day visit, and will leave Cuba for Brazil Tuesday.
