China seeks closer exchanges with Laos

GENERAL secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and Chinese President Xi Jinping says China is ready to work with Laos to further intensify high-level contact, cement strategic communication and deepen experience exchanges on party and state governance.

Xi made the remarks on Thursday in a telephone conversation with Thongloun Sisoulith, general secretary of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party (LPRP) Central Committee.

On behalf of the CPC as well as the Chinese government and people, Xi congratulated Thongloun on his election as general secretary of the LPRP Central Committee.

The successful convention of the 11th LPRP Congress, which put forward new measures on party and state governance, is of great significance to continuously pushing forward the development of Laos’ socialist cause, Xi said.

China and Laos are friendly neighbours, he said, adding that upholding the Communist party’s leadership and adhering to the socialist orientation are essential features of bilateral ties. — Xinhua
