China's top political adviser Jia Qinglin arrived in Damascus, Friday for an official friendly visit to Syria.

In a written speech released at the airport, Jia, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), hailed the development of bilateral ties between China and Syria since they established diplomatic relations in 1956.

"China attaches great importance to the friendly ties with Syria," he said, pledging joint efforts with Syria to enhance political mutual trust, boost traditional friendship, bolster substantial cooperation and promote common development.

Jia said he was looking forward to exchanging views with Syrian leaders on the further development of bilateral relations and on major international and regional issues of common concern.

"I believe my visit will help the people of China and Syria better know each other and boost their friendship," he said.

Syria is the first leg of Jia's four-nation tour from Oct. 29 to Nov. 11. He will also visit Poland, Oman and Kazakhstan.
