Bolivia, China sign visa-extension agreement


14:19, February 27, 2013

LA PAZ, Feb. 26 (Xinhua) -- The Bolivian Foreign Ministry announced Tuesday that Bolivia and China have signed a visa-extension agreement to help their citizens obtain tourist or visitor visas.

It said the agreement was signed under the spirit of the July 1985 Communique on the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations, which is the foundation of the friendship and cooperation between the two countries.

The agreement is also based on the principles of mutual respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity, mutual non-intervention in the internal affairs of each other's country, and shared benefits, the ministry said.

Earlier, the Chinese Embassy in Bolivia had announced similar visa arrangement for its citizens.

Chinese Ambassador to Bolivia Li Dong said in a news release on the embassy's website that "the agreement will further improve the interaction and cooperation in trade, tourism and culture between China and Bolivia," which have witnessed rapid progress in personnel exchanges between them in recent years.

The visa agreement was finalized at a bilateral meeting on consular issues held last August in Beijing.
