Li Peng Meets Zambian Visitor
Li Peng, chairman of China's National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee, lauded the Sino-Zambian bilateral ties here on Monday during his meeting with Somon Mwila, deputy speaker of the Zambian National Assembly.
Li said that since the two countries forged diplomatic relations 35 years ago, the bilateral cooperation has advanced consistently in various fields.
As Zambia is rich in mineral resources, the two countries can further cooperate in the mining industry, Li said, adding that the two sides should complete the ongoing projects in high quality.
Li also recalled the hospitality he received during his visit to Zambia in 1997.
Mwila hailed the bilateral ties, saying that the Chinese government has positively participated in the development of Zambia by carrying out a variety of cooperative projects with his country.
He expressed his thanks for China's support and help to Zambia.
Mwila also praised the great achievements China has scored in the last 50 years since the People's Republic of China was founded. (Xinhua)
