HAVANA, Dec. 8 (Xinhua) -- Cuban leader Raul Castro pledged on Saturday to further develop the relations between his country and China when meeting with a senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC).

Briefed by Li Yuanchao, a member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, on the 18th CPC National Congress which was concluded last month, Castro said the congress has set a blueprint for China's future development.

Cuba is willing to learn the experience of China on development and elevate the Cuba-China ties to a higher level, he added.

Li said the CPC and the Cuban Communist Party (CCP) and the two countries have been supporting each other in building socialism, safeguarding world peace and promoting common development.

The new CPC leadership with Xi Jinping as general secretary values the traditional friendship between the two countries and is committed to developing the China-Cuba friendly cooperation, he said.

On Friday, Li met with CCP Second Secretary-General and Cuban First Vice President of Council of State and Council of Ministers Jose Ramon Machado Ventura, and attended the signing ceremony of an agreement on exchanges and cooperation between the two parties.
