08:35, April 26, 2012

BEIJING, April 25 (Xinhua) -- Chinese top political adviser Jia Qinglin's visit to New Zealand, Brunei and Thailand has deepened the friendship, promoted cooperation and enhanced mutual trust between China and the three nations, a Chinese official said Wednesday.

The visit, coming in the first year of China's 12th five-year plan for national economic and social development, was of great significance for deepening the friendship and mutual trust, promoting pragmatic cooperation and realizing mutually beneficial development between China and the three countries, said Wang Shenghong, vice secretary general of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC).

Jia, chairman of the CPPCC National Committee, had in-depth exchanges of views and reached broad consensus with government and parliament leaders of the three countries on issues related to bilateral ties and international and regional issues of common interest, said Wang, who accompanied Jia on the tour from April 13 to 25.

The 13-day visit, Wang said, yielded rich results.


During meetings and talks with leaders of the three countries, Jia spoke highly of the development of the traditional friendship and bilateral ties between China and the three countries.

China, Jia said, attached great importance to the relationship with New Zealand, Brunei and Thailand and was ready to build up political mutual trust, advance cooperation and conduct coordination and cooperation with the three nations in international and regional affairs more closely so as to push their friendly cooperation to a higher level.

In New Zealand, Jia said common interests between China and New Zealand had far outweighed their differences. Friendly cooperation for mutual benefit had always been the leitmotif of relations between the two countries, Jia said.

In Brunei, Jia said the friendship between the two countries went back a long way and their relations served as an outstanding example of mutual respect and equality between a big country and a small one.

While in Thailand, Jia spoke of China's commitment to friendship with Thailand and expressed hope that the China-Thailand relationship would continue to play a leading and demonstrative role in the Asian region.

The New Zealand government said it had benefited a lot from the sound development of relations with China and was determined to push forward their relationship from a strategic perspective.

Bruneian leaders said Jia's visit had injected fresh impetus to the bilateral relationship and they highly appreciated the peaceful and friendly policy adopted by China to all the countries, big or small.

Thailand's leaders thanked China for its long-term and precious support and expressed their willingness to strengthen strategic communication so as to jointly respond to challenges ahead.
