Yang Jiechi Meets with Albanian Parliament Speaker Topalli

2011/08/05

On August 4, 2011, Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi met with the Speaker of the Albanian Parliament Jozefina Topalli in Tirana.

Yang said that the profound friendship built between the Chinese and the Albanian people over the past several decades provides the fertile soil for the growth of bilateral relations. Entering the new century, the two countries enjoy friendly political relations, strong economic and trade complementarities and a solid foundation of public opinion and share a high level of consensus on further growing the bilateral ties which will embrace more opportunities. It is necessary for China and Albania to keep the high-level contacts, step up the economic cooperation and cultural exchanges, realize another peak of the bilateral relations in the second decade of the 21st century and pass on the China-Albania friendship from generation to generation.

He noted that the relations between legislatures are key component of the bilateral ties. The two countries are both committed to economic and social development. Our legislative bodies can share more experience of running the state and hence make greater contributions to the welfare of our people.

Topalli said that the Albanian people have deep and pleasant memory of the traditional friendship with China and admire the development achievements China has made. The friendship between the people is the treasury of both countries. Albania expects to deepen the bilateral pragmatic cooperation and turn the friendship of the two countries into tangible results. The two sides also need to continue the cultural exchanges so as to enhance mutual understanding. The Albanian Parliament hopes to carry out more exchanges and cooperation with the National People's Congress and the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference of China.
