China continue to support Sri Lanka at UNHRC & UN Security Council : Video
China pledged to continue its support to Sri Lanka at U.N. forums when the country’s Vice Foreign Minister Liu Zhenmin met President Mahinda Rajapaksa at Temple Trees.
President Rajapaksa thanked China for its support to Sri Lanka at the UNHRC this year. China voted against the resolution on Sri Lanka in Geneva last month and defended Sri Lanka’s sovereignty and national security.
Liu thanked President Rajapaksa for his personal interest in Sri Lanka-China bilateral relations.
President Rajapaksa visited China in May 2013 during which the two countries elevated their relationship to one of “strategic cooperation,” a significant milestone in bilateral relations.
During discussions in China last year, Vice President Li Yuanchao said China will continue to strengthen relations with Sri Lanka and to expand cooperation into new sectors in what he described as an equal partnership.
Describing China as an “all-weather” friend to Sri Lanka, Liu said Sri Lanka is “a good friend, a good neighbor and a good partner.”
