China and Zambia agreed to further boost military ties during a meeting of senior military officials in Beijing Wednesday.

China and Zambia enjoy traditional friendship and bilateral relations have developed smoothly since the two countries established diplomatic ties 46 years ago, Vice Chairman of China's Central Military Commission Guo Boxiong said in a meeting in Beijing with Zambian Defense Minister Kalombo Mwansa.

The two countries have also maintained a broad consensus and good coordination in international and regional issues, Guo said, adding that China appreciated Zambia's adherence to the one-China policy as well as its support on the issues of Taiwan, Tibet and human rights.

China would like to make joint efforts with Zambia to enhance bilateral relations including military ties, Guo added.

Guo also briefed Mwansa on China's recent social and economic development and the just-concluded fifth plenary session of the 17th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC).

Mwansa congratulated China on its remarkable achievements, saying frequent high-level visits between Zambia and China in recent years showed that the relationship between the two countries was deepening.

Zambia will continue its firm adherence to the one-China policy and make more efforts to further promote their relations, Mwansa added.
