Pakistan Observer - - INTERNATIONAL -


Xi, also gen­eral sec­re­tary of the Com­mu­nist Party of China (CPC) Cen­tral Com­mit­tee, con­grat­u­lated the Cuban side on the congress and asked Valdes to con­vey his greet­ings to com­rades Fidel Cas­tro and Raul Cas­tro. Hail­ing Cuba’s achieve­ments over the past more than 50 years, Xi said he be­lieved that the Cuban peo­ple will achieve even more in the so­cial­ist cause under the lead­er­ship of the new PCC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee with Raul Cas­tro as first sec­re­tary.

Xi said the re­la­tion­ship be­tween China and Cuba with­stood the test of changes in the in­ter­na­tional arena and that the two coun­tries share a com­mon ideal and bear deep af­fec­tion for each other. Re­call­ing his state visit to Cuba two years ago, Xi said he hopes the two sides will ce­ment their friend­ship and boost co­op­er­a­tion. Valdes said the Cuban side cher­ishes the tra­di­tional friend­ship be­tween Cuba and China and that Cuba’s new lead­er­ship at­taches great im­por­tance to the ties be­tween the two par­ties as well as the two coun­tries. The Cuban side looks for­ward to closer ex­changes on gov­er­nance and prac­ti­cal co­op­er­a­tion. PARIS—Saudi Ara­bia and France will sign sev­eral agree­ments and mem­o­randa of un­der­stand­ing (MoU) on the side­lines of the Saudi’s Deputy Crown Prince Mo­ham­mad Bin Sal­man’s visit to Paris, ac­cord­ing to Saudi am­bas­sador to France Khaled al-An­qari.

“The visit will fur­ther bol­ster the his­toric re­la­tions be­tween the two coun­tries,” he said while em­pha­siz­ing that th­ese solid and strate­gic re­la­tions are based on mu­tual re­spect and pro­mo­tion of com­mon in­ter­ests, the Saudi Press Agency re­ported. AlAn­qari noted that the SaudiFrench po­lit­i­cal po­si­tions and views are iden­ti­cal to­wards most of the global is­sues, par­tic­u­larly with re­gard to the Mid­dle East is­sues.— Agen­cies
