BEIJING, Aug. 21 (Xinhua) -- He Guoqiang, a member of China's top leadership, expressed readiness to advance China-Cyprus relations in a sustained, healthy and stable way here on Tuesday.

He, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), briefed a group of visiting Cypriot officials about preparations for the upcoming 18th CPC National Congress as he met with them in the Great Hall of the People.
