Meng, also a State Councilor, said that China is sincerely happy to see the great achievements Laos has made, adding that China would like to work with Laos to further develop their cooperative partnership through enhanced mutual political trust, cultural exchanges, economic cooperation, and close coordination and cooperation in international and regional affairs.
