Chinese senior official meets Maldives party delegation

A senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC) pledged to enhance cooperation with the Dhivehi Rayyithunge Party (DRP) of Maldives on Thursday.

"The CPC would like to promote exchanges with the DRP based on the principles of independence, equality, mutual respect and non-interference in each other's internal affairs," said He Yong, a member of the Secretariat of the CPC Central Committee.

He, also deputy secretary of the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, said Sino-Maldives relations have developed in a healthy way since the two countries forged diplomatic ties, during a meeting with a DRP delegation headed by Aneesa Ahmed, leader of the DRP parliamentary group.

Aneesa spoke highly of Maldives-China relations, expressed gratitude for China's long-term aids, and reaffirmed the adherence of Maldives to one-China policy and the support on the Tibet issue.
