Sri Lanka, China pledge to fur­ther boost bi­lat­eral ties

Fiji Sun - - World News - Xin­hua

Sri Lanka and China agreed to fur­ther de­velop their strate­gic co-op­er­a­tive part­ner­ship, visit­ing Chi­nese For­eign Min­is­ter Wang Yi said on Fri­day. When meet­ing with his Sri Lankan coun­ter­part Man­gala Samaraweera, Wang said both sides should im­ple­ment the con­sen­sus reached by the lead­er­ship of the two coun­tries and en­hance their mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial co-op­er­a­tion in var­i­ous fields. The China-Sri Lanka strate­gic co­op­er­a­tive part­ner­ship is the achieve­ment of ef­forts ex­erted by both gov­ern­ments and peo­ples through gen­er­a­tions, he said. Chi­nese Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping made a his­toric visit to Sri Lanka in 2014 and planned a blue­print for the de­vel­op­ment of bi­lat­eral re­la­tions, said Wang, stress­ing that China’s friendly poli­cies and mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial co­op­er­a­tion with Sri Lanka did not change in the past and will not change in the fu­ture. Cur­rently both coun­tries are de­vel­op­ing sound, sta­ble and mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial ties.
