Li Changchun, a senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC), vowed to further step up party- to-party exchanges with the Mozambique Liberation Front Party (LFP) and boost win-win cooperation with the country.

The pledge was made in his talks with LFP General Secretary Filipe Paunde and meeting with Mozambique President Armando Emilio Guebuza on Friday.

Li, a member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau, praised the achievements of China- Mozambique relations, citing enhanced political trust, fruitful cooperation in various areas, and in particular, the rapid growth of win-win cooperation in infrastructure building.

These achievements had injected new vitality to China-Mozambique traditional friendly ties, he said.

"We treasure our friendship with the country, and hopes to make joint efforts with Mozambique to promote greater progress of our cooperative ties," said Li, who is in Maputo for a two-day official goodwill visit to Mozambique.

Speaking positively of the relations between CPC and LFP, he said the two ruling parties share common tasks of boosting development and maintaining world peace.

The close party-to-party exchanges had not only facilitated substantial cooperation between both countries, and also added new connotation to future party-to-party relations, he added.

"The CPC attaches great importance to its friendly ties with LFP, and hopes to seek new cooperation channels and methods with the party to contribute to the continuous growth of China- Mozambique relations," Li said.

In response, Paunde told Li the CPC, the Chinese government as well as the Chinese people were good friends, comrades and brothers of Mozambique.

He appreciated the support from the CPC in Mozambique's national independence and liberation cause, adding he hopes to further cement party-to-party exchanges, share experience in country governance, to further consolidate the traditional friendship between the two parties, countries and peoples.

In his meeting with Mozambique President Guebuza, Li said China's cooperation proposals with Mozambique which was put forward during the Beijing Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation, had been fully implemented, and the cooperation projects nailed down by the two countries' leaders during his visits had been realized.

"These important projects had played positive role in promoting the economic and social development of Mozambique, and deepening bilateral win-win cooperation, and also revealed China's affection with the country," he said.

Li called for joint efforts from Mozambique to create favorable conditions for deepening China-Africa cooperation, and boost greater development of the new type of China-Africa strategic partnership.

Guebuza said the newly-completed national stadium in Maputo with the aid from China, was the largest construction in Mozambique, and also a new symbol of bilateral friendship.

He expressed gratitude for China's precious assistance for Mozambique over the years, citing human resource training program and exchanges of ruling parties' cadres.

"We benefited a lot from China's support, and expect to learn from China's development experience and CPC's governance idea, to boost all-round development of our bilateral relations," he said.

Li also met with Mozambique Prime Minister Aires Ali on Friday and witnessed the signing of a series of bilateral cooperation agreements in the areas such as culture, trade and press.

Mozambique is the last leg of Li's five-nation tour which also took him to Armenia, Romania, Slovenia and Kenya.
