BEIJING, Jan. 12 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Hu Jintao exchanged congratulatory messages with Angolan President Jose Eduardo dos Santos on Saturday to mark the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between the two countries.

In his message, Hu said China and Angola had always respected and treated each other as equals since they established diplomatic ties 30 years ago, with their traditional friendship continually brimming with fresh vitality and energy.

The two sides had made rapid progress in mutual political trust, achieved fruitful results in exchanges and cooperation in such fields as the economy, trade, culture, education and healthcare, and maintained close coordination in international and regional affairs and important issues of common concern, he said.

Hu said China, taking the anniversary as an opportunity, was ready to make concerted efforts with Angola to push for in-depth development of their strategic partnership.

In his message, dos Santos said Angola and China, based on the principles of mutual respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity and non-interference in each other's internal affairs, had advanced the continued development of their cooperation in various areas.

He said he was confident the two countries' consistent political will and economic complementarity would continue to deepen bilateral relations, boost common development, and benefit the two peoples.

Also on Saturday, Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi exchanged congratulatory messages with Angolan counterpart Georges Chikoti.
