BEIJING, Aug. 29 (Xinhua) -- Liu Yunshan, a senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC), met with Jose Ramon Balaguer, special envoy of Cuban Communist Party (CCP) Central Committee first secretary Raul Castro, here on Monday afternoon.

Liu, a member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, expressed his welcome and appreciation for Balaguer's visit to notify the CPC of the information on the 6th CCP Congress and the preparation work for a party meeting in 2012.

The successful convening of the 6th CCP Congress pointed out a clear direction for Cuba to explore a development path fitting its national conditions and achieve fresh progress in building socialism, Liu said.

The 6th CCP Congress began on April 16 and concluded on April 19, during which Raul Castro was elected the first secretary of the Central Committee of the party.

The Cuban people have made gratifying achievements under the leadership of the CCP, while sticking to the socialist road, Liu said.

The CPC will maintain its goal of developing a long-term Sino-Cuban friendship, and is willing to work with the CCP to create a new chapter in state-to-state ties, said Liu, who is also head of the CPC Central Committee's Publicity Department.

Balaguer, a member of the Secretariat of the CCP Central Committee and chief of the International Department of the CCP Central Committee, said Cuba greatly values its tradition of friendship with China, and the CCP is ready to push forward inter-party ties with the CPC.

He also expressed appreciation for China's continued support of Cuba.

At the invitation of the CPC, Balaguer kicked off his four-day visit on Aug. 28.
