BEIJING, Feb. 24 (Xinhua) -- The comprehensive strategic partnership that China and Algeria established on Monday is the first of its kind among China's relationship with Arab countries, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said.

Chinese President Xi Jinping and Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika decided to raise the level of bilateral relations to a comprehensive strategic partnership on the 55th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations and the 10th anniversary of strategic cooperation between the two countries, Hua told a regular press briefing.

"The Chinese side places great importance on developing China-Algeria relations," Hua said, adding that Algeria is a major African nation that plays an important role in the Arab, Islamic and non-aligned movement world.

"China is ready to proceed from this fresh starting point and join with the Algerian side to advance the China-Algeria comprehensive strategic partnership," she said.

Algeria is to hold a presidential election on April 17 as Bouteflika runs for a fourth term.
