Bolivia's Morales vows to deepen cooperation with China
Bolivian President Evo Morales said Thursday that his country is willing to strengthen cooperation with China in trade, investment, energy, infrastructure and public security.
In a meeting with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, Morales said China and Bolivia are geopolitical partners and have similar governance ideas.
The Bolivian government and people respect China's development achievements, appreciate its commitment to global development and thank its support for Bolivia's economic and social development, he said.
Wang said that China cherishes relations with Bolivia and appreciates Bolivia's independent foreign policy. China will continue to push forward practical cooperation with Bolivia in various fields, he said.
China firmly supports Latin American integration and is ready to promote cooperation with Latin America, said Wang.
Wang also met with his Bolivian counterpart, David Choquehuanca, on Thursday and exchanged views on political mutual trust, economic cooperation as well as international and regional issues of common concern.
At a press conference in La Paz on Thursday, Wang said China is satisfied with the current development of China-Bolivia relations and has confidence in future cooperation.
The Chinese side will help Bolivia accelerate industrialization and enhance its capacity of independent development. China never attaches political conditions on cooperation and never interferes in other countries' internal affairs, he noted.
Wang said that under the guidance of Chinese President Xi Jinping and Latin American leaders, China-Latin America overall cooperation has had a good start.
China will work with Latin American countries to further construct the forum between China and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) and to promote the China-CELAC comprehensive cooperative partnership, he added.
