A senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC) said on Thursday the CPC is ready to enhance exchanges with parties of Brazil’s 10-party ruling coalition and to jointly advance relations between the two countries.
Wang Lequan, a member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and deputy secretary of the Political Science and Law Committee of the CPC Central Committee, made the remarks while meeting with a visiting study group from Brazil’s ruling coalition.
The 10-strong delegation consists of party members from Brazil’s Workers Party, the Brazilian Socialist Party, the Democratic Labor Party and the Communist Party of Brazil.
Wang, who visited Brazil in June, spoke highly of Sino-Brazilian ties and the role played by Brazil in international and regional affairs.
He said the CPC was ready to deepen exchanges with Brazil’s ruling coalition in state governance and push forward the bilateral ties.
The delegates, which started the 12-day tour on Wednesday, expressed their hopes to bolster friendship with the CPC, saying they will make efforts to contribute to bilateral cooperation in all areas.
They also congratulated the CPC on its 90th founding anniversary.
