BEIJING, Oct. 24 (Xinhua) -- Top Chinese legislator Wu Bangguo met with his Botswana counterpart Margaret Nasha Monday in Beijing, and they hailed the growth of bilateral ties and pledged to further cooperation.

China will enhance political mutual trust and deepen cooperation with the African nation in manufacturing, mining industry and infrastructure, said Wu, chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC).

He voiced appreciation for Botswana's adherence to the one-China policy, saying China holds that all countries are equal members of the international community despite their size.

Both China and Botswana bear the similar tasks of promoting economic growth, improving people's livelihood and maintaining stability, which provides a broad perspective for bilateral cooperation, he said.

Nasha, speaker of Botswana's National Assembly, said China is a good friend and brother of African states, and her country will learn from China's experiences in economic and social development.
