Senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Li Changchun on Monday visited the Confucius Institute at Yerevan State Linguistic University of Armenia, calling on the institute to train more talents and contribute to deeper China-Armenia friendship.

Li, a member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee's Political Bureau, said the institute has served as a new bridge for friendly exchanges between the two peoples. Jointly launched by Yerevan State Linguistic University of Armenia and China's Shanxi University in October 2008, the institute aims to forge stronger educational, cultural and commercial links between Armenia and China.

"We are glad to see that the institute was warmly welcomed by Armenian students and local people. It has become an important window for Armenian youth to learn Chinese language and culture, as well as a great platform for deepening understanding and friendship between both peoples," Li said.

On behalf of the Chinese government, Li presented a statue of Confucius to the institute and offered 10 students scholarships for one-year training in China. He also invited another 20 Armenian students to join a Chinese summer camp this year.

Li arrived in Yerevan earlier on Monday for a two-day official goodwill visit to Armenia.
