China opens to work with any country for Pacific development: Vice FM


16:03, August 31, 2012

RAROTONGA, Cook Islands, Aug. 30 (Xinhua) -- China is open to work with any country in helping to bring stability and prosperity to the Pacific islands region, Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Cui Tiankai said Wednesday.

Speaking ahead of the launch of a three-way partnership to bring a water supply project to the Cook Islands with New Zealand, Cui said China had much to offer the developing nations of the Pacific and a long tradition of giving assistance to other developing countries.

"For one thing, maybe we have the appropriate technology which could be applied to the island countries," he said in an exclusive interview with Xinhua.

"We have our own development experience what we have learned in our own country could be useful for the island countries as well," he said.

"And most importantly both China and the island countries are developing countries. We do share a lot of common challenges and that is a very good political basis for such cooperation," he added.

China was very happy see that New Zealand was the first developed nation to enter an assistance partnership with China, he said.
