HAVANA, April 21 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that China would deepen its mutually beneficial cooperation with Cuba in various fields and refresh China-Cuba ties.
China also would continue to adhere to the policy of long-term friendship with Cuba, maintain high-level exchanges and strengthen exchanges on governance experience with Cuba, Wang said Sunday when meeting former Cuban leader Fidel Castro.
Castro, the founder of both Cuba's socialist revolution and Cuba-China ties, was widely respected by the Chinese people and all people around the world who love peace, said Wang who is in Cuba on the first stop of a four-nation Latin America tour.
Castro said China's enormous achievements in economic development had made important contributions to the peace and development of humanity.
The Cuba-China relationship had entered its best period, Castro said, adding that the two countries should support each other, learn from each other and strive to further enhance bilateral ties.
