Chinese Vice President Li Yuanchao met with visiting Sri Lankan Foreign Minister G. L Peiris in Beijing yesterday, calling on both countries to boost cooperation and cement their strategic cooperation partnership.

Hailing the stable growth of bilateral ties, Li said China-Sri Lanka relations had entered a new stage of development after the two heads of state announced an upgrade of relations to strategic cooperation partnership last year.

He said he hoped the two sides would facilitate pragmatic cooperation in accordance with the countries' national development strategies and offer stronger support and reliable friendship to each other.

Meanwhile, China’s Foreign Minister offered support for Sri Lanka after the United States said it would table a UN resolution against Colombo over its human rights record.

Foreign Minister Wang Yi told his counterpart Professor G. L. Peiris in Beijing that China opposes some countries’ interference in the internal affairs of Sri Lanka under the pretext of human rights issues.

Wang said China backs the Sri Lankan government in safeguarding national independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity.
