13:08, November 22, 2011

BRASILIA, Nov. 21 (Xinhua) -- Delegates from a Chinese NGO held a roundtable here Monday with Brazilian counterparts to discuss cooperation on disarmament.

In his speech, Han Qide, head of the Chinese People's Association for Peace and Disarmament (CPAPD), said China and Brazil, as biggest developing nations in the world and in Latin America respectively, are both tasked with promoting economic development, improving people's livelihood, safeguarding world peace and boosting the advancement of humanity.

Exchanges and contacts between NGOs of the two sides are indispensable to the bilateral ties and thus have greater strategic significance, said Han, also a vice chairman of China's National People's Congress Standing Committee.

Han's remarks were echoed by representatives from Brazilian NGOs, who agreed that as the two countries' economies are developing fast, exchanges and cooperation between their NGOs take on special significance.

Brazilian social organizations stand ready to enhance friendly contacts with the CPAPD and other Chinese NGOs, advance cooperation within a multilateral framework and help promote Brazil-China strategic partnership from a nongovernmental perspective, they added.
