BEIJING, Nov. 4 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Hu Jintao on Thursday congratulated Almazbek Atambayev on winning Kyrgyzstan's presidential election and pledged to strengthen bilateral relations.

China and Kyrgyzstan are good neighbors, good friends and good partners, Hu said in a congratulatory message to Atambayev, who preliminary results showed secured more 60 percent of the vote in Sunday's presidential election.

Since the two countries established diplomatic relations almost 20 years ago, their good-neighborly and cooperative relationship has developed healthily and smoothly thanks to concerted efforts from both sides, Hu said.

The steady development of the China-Kyrgyzstan relationship has brought tangible benefits to the two peoples and made positive contributions to regional and international peace, stability and development, Hu added.

China, he said, attaches great importance to promoting its good-neighborly and cooperative relationship with Kyrgyzstan and will carry on its friendly foreign policy towards Kyrgyzstan.

Meanwhile, China respects the development path and political institutions the Kyrgyz people have chosen on the basis of their country's realities, and supports Kyrgyzstan's efforts to maintain its national independence, sovereignty and security and facilitate socio-economic development, Hu said.

The Chinese president said he will work together with Atambayev to further deepen mutual political trust, cement the traditional friendship and expand pragmatic cooperation in various fields so as to lift bilateral relations to higher levels.
