BEIJING, Jan. 25 (Xinhua) — China’s top legislator Li Zhanshu held talks with Maya Fernandez Allende, president of the Chilean Chamber of Deputies, in Beijing Friday.

Hailing the traditional friendship between the two countries, Li, chairman of China’s National People’s Congress (NPC) Standing Committee, said the precious experience of bilateral friendship should be passed down and carried forward.

“We are glad to see that China-Chile relations have been upgraded to a comprehensive strategic partnership and have yield cooperative results in various fields,” said Li, adding that those achievements were derived from “sincere treatment, mutual respect and trust, complementary advantages, mutually beneficial and win-win results” between the two countries.

China-Chile relations will embrace new opportunities in the next two years, said the top legislator, calling on the two sides to enhance friendly cooperation in various fields and promote comprehensive strategic partnership for continued development featuring exchanges of two heads of state and jointly building the Belt and Road.

“China stands ready to work with Chile and countries around the world to build a community of a shared future featuring equality, mutual benefit and common development, but not targeting or excluding any third party,” he said.

On enhancing cooperation between the two legislative bodies, Li called on the NPC and the National Congress of Chile to continue to give full play to the political communication committee, expand experience exchanges on legislation, supervision and governance, guarantee the joint construction of the Belt and Road and expansion of economic and trade cooperation in compliance with rule of law, optimize the business environment, and promote cultural and people-to-people exchanges and cooperation between the two countries.

Fernandez said the National Congress of Chile stands ready to work with the NPC of China to continue to give full play to communication mechanism and platform, explore cooperation potential, facilitate people-to-people exchanges, and constantly enrich the connotation of bilateral relations. She said Chile will, as always, adhere to the one-China policy.
