12:24, April 04, 2012

KAMPALA, April 3 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice Premier Hui Liangyu calls on China and Uganda to take the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties as an opportunity to jointly promote the bilateral friendly and cooperative relations to a new stage.

Hui made the call on Monday when he met with Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni in Kampala, capital of Uganda.

He said China and Uganda share a profound traditional friendship and that the bilateral relations of the two counties enjoy a healthy development.

The two sides, he said, should maintain frequent high-level exchanges, increase political mutual trust, expand cooperation in various fields and intensify coordination and cooperation in international affairs.

The Chinese side appreciates President Museveni for his contribution to the Sino-Ugandan and Sino-African friendship, the Chinese official said.

In recent years, the two countries have seen economic and trade cooperation develop quickly and diversified, fully embodying the principle of mutual benefit and common development. China is willing to work hand in hand with Uganda to deepen pragmatic cooperation in trade, agriculture, infrastructure and other fields, Hui said.

Museveni said the two countries enjoy traditional friendship. As an old friend of China, Uganda is very glad to see the great achievements China has made.

Ugandans, he said, have also made progress in building their own country, but there is still urgent need to improve infrastructure, and agricultural and mineral processing.

Uganda is willing to work with China to enhance cooperation and further the healthy development of bilateral economic and trade relations, Museveni told his Chinese guest.
