BEIJING, Sept. 8 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Cui Tiankai will travel to New Zealand on Friday for a dialogue during the Pacific Islands Forum.

As the representative of the Chinese government, Cui will attend the dialogue on the sidelines of the 23rd Pacific Islands Forum held in Auckland, New Zealand, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Liu Weimin said at a press briefing on Thursday.

Founded in 1971, the Pacific Islands Forum is an inter-governmental organization that aims to enhance cooperation between the independent countries of the Pacific Ocean.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Pacific Islands Forum, and China places tremendous importance to developing ties with the forum and its member countries, Liu said.

China will continue to develop cooperative relations with these island countries and offer them assistance within China's capacity, Liu said.

"As a positive and constructive force in the region, China would like to boost the dialogue and make a positive contribution to promoting peace, stability and development for the countries of the Pacific Ocean," Liu said.
