Zimbabwe, China to strengthen party-to-party ties


13:23, March 24, 2012

HARARE, March 23 (Xinhua) -- The Communist Party of China (CPC) and Zimbabwe's ruing party ZANU-PF agreed on Friday to step up bilateral party-to-party cooperation in the new era.

The message was sent out when Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, who is also ZANU-PF First Secretary and President, met with visiting CPC delegation at the State House on Friday.

The CPC delegation led by Liu Qi, member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, arrived in the country after a three-day visit in Angola.

Speaking at the meeting held in the Zimbabwean capital, Mugabe said Zimbabwe remains China's greatest friend and stressed the need to further cement bilateral relations in the new era where China has grown into a major global economic powerhouse and a strong political voice on the international stage.

Liu, also secretary of the Beijing Municipal Committee of the CPC, said China-Zimbabwe ties are a role model for other states in the region.

ZANU-PF National Chairman Simon Khaya Moyo, who was present at the meeting, described the visit as significant, adding that relations between the two parties should be consolidated through various channels including training of party cadres, especially the youth and provincial chairpersons.

Relations between ZANU-PF and the CPC have been rooted in the fight for the independence of Zimbabwe when China assisted the liberation party and many others in the region.
