Li Changchun, a senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC), arrived in Yerevan on Monday for an official goodwill visit to Armenia.

Li, a member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau, said in a statement upon his arrival that he hoped to make friends, enhance friendship and expand cooperation with Armenia during his trip, and to promote greater development of bilateral ties in the new era.

Hailing bilateral exchanges, which date back to the Silk Road period, he said the two peoples have supported each other on global stage, and have made their contributions to maintaining world peace and promoting common development.

"China attaches great importance to its relations with Armenia," he said, adding traditional friendship between the two peoples enjoyed further growth in recent years, and China-Armenia ties are now at their best.

During his stay in Armenia, Li will meet with Armenian President Serzh Sarkisyan, Prime Minister Tigran Sarkisyan and Chairman of the National Assembly Ovik Abramyan. The two countries are expected to sign a number of agreements in economy, trade and other areas.

Li left Beijing earlier on Monday for a five-nation trip which will also take him to Romania, Slovenia, Kenya and Mozambique.
