Li Changchun, a senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC), met with Slovenian President Danilo Tuerk on Friday on deepening bilateral ties and win-win cooperation.

Li, a member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau, conveyed the greetings from Chinese President Hu Jintao to Tuerk. Li praised the stable growth of bilateral relations since the establishment of diplomatic ties, citing enhanced political trust, increased exchanges among various levels, fruitful cooperation in trade, culture, education, technology and tourism areas, and sound coordination in global affairs.

"We are satisfied with the growth of China-Slovenia relations, and appreciate Slovenia's adherence to the one-China policy as well as its support for China on issues concerning our core interests," Li said.

Considering Slovenia an important cooperative partner of China in southeastern Europe, Li said the Chinese government and the CPC attached great importance to relations with Slovenia, and to further enhance bilateral ties to meet the common interests of both countries and peoples.

He vowed to promote closer high-level exchanges, deepen cooperation in the areas such as trade, culture and tourism, enhance youth exchanges, to push forward China-Slovenia relations up to a new stage.

With regard to China-Europe relations, Li reiterated China's positive stance on developing relations with Europe, expressing his hope that Slovenia would play positive role in the European Union to promote healthy China-EU relations.

In response, Tuerk said his country sticks to the one-China policy, and would support China to play greater role. He said both of the two countries had carried out win-win cooperation on the principle of mutual respect and equality, adding China had made positive contribution to the harmonious development of the world.

Later on Friday, Li also met with Slovenian Prime Minister Borut Pahor and National Assembly Speaker Pavel Gantar. In his meeting with Pahor, Li said the Chinese government encourages prominent enterprises to invest in Slovenia and cooperate with the country in the areas such as railway, port and clean energy. He also welcomed more Slovenian companies to explore Chinese market and increase export to China, to promote balanced development of bilateral trade.

Li said the CPC hopes to set up party-to-party cooperative ties with the Social Democrats Party (SDP) of Slovenia, and he invited the party to send high-level delegation to visit China this year.

Calling China the largest trading partner of Slovenia in China, Pahor called on both sides to seize opportunity to promote all- round development of bilateral relations.

Pahor, who is also SDP president, said his party hopes to set up friendly ties with the CPC and would send a delegation to visit China as soon as possible.
