BEIJING, Oct. 27 (Xinhua) -- A senior Chinese official pledged Thursday to step up cooperation between Chinese and Kenyan mass media.

"Mass media play an important part in promoting mutual understanding between people from different countries as well as bolstering friendship and cooperation," said Liu Yunshan, head of the Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, in a meeting here with Samuel Pogyisio, Kenya's Minister of Information and Communication.

China is willing to make joint efforts with Kenya as well as all African nations to seek practical modes of cooperation in terms of news products, personnel training and technical security so that mass media can better serve the people of the countries, he said.

Liu said Kenya is an influential nation in east Africa, and China attaches great importance to bilateral ties between the two countries.

"China will work together with the Kenyan side, innovating the modes and expanding the channels of cooperation, to push the friendship and cooperation between the two countries to a new phase," said the Chinese official.

For his part, Pogyisio hailed the role of China's media sector on the world stage in recent years, and voiced his hope of furthering exchanges in the sector between the two countries.
