Yechury Meets with CPC Leaders


THE communist parties of China and India vowed to strengthen exchanges and cooperation to promote a sound development of China-India relations.


The pledge came out of a meeting between Head of the Organization Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee Li Yuanchao and a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) Sitaram Yechury in downtown Beijing on July 14.

Li said the CPC will continue to maintain contacts at all levels with the CPI(M), strengthen experience exchanges in party building and consolidate their friendly relationship.

Yechury said the CPI(M) valued its traditional friendship with the CPC and is ready to further expand their exchanges and cooperation, so as to promote a sound and stable development of India-China relations.

Li, also a member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, spoke highly of the contribution made by the CPI(M) toward the China-India friendship. He added that the two countries share broad common interests. Their good-neighbourly friendship and cooperation will exert far-reaching influence on regional and world peace and promote stability and prosperity.

Li also briefed the guests about the activities held to mark the 90th anniversary of the CPC's founding.

Yechury congratulated the CPC on its anniversary on behalf of the CPI(M) Central Committee.
