Li Zhanshu Meets with President Iván Duque Márquez of Colombia

On July 31, 2019, Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress Li Zhanshu met with President Iván Duque Márquez of Colombia at the Great Hall of the People.

Li Zhanshu expressed, China-Colombia relationship now stands at a new historic starting point after its development for nearly 40 years since the establishment of the diplomatic relationship. One of those important characteristics of bilateral relations is mutual respect for each other's development path, as well as mutual support on issues concerning each other's core interests and major concerns. The meeting between President Xi Jinping and Mr. President this time will surely guide bilateral relations to a higher level. The National People's Congress of China is willing to, together with the Colombian Congress, promote the implementation of the consensus reached by the two Heads of State, facilitate the friendly exchanges between the legislative institutions at various levels and among the various special committees and the friendly groups of the two countries, and strengthen exchanges of experience in legislation work and state governance and administration, so as to provide legal guarantee and support for the development of bilateral relations.

Iván Duque Márquez said, my visit to China this time is to work with President Xi Jinping to plan a better future of Colombia-China relations. The Colombian side stands ready to further deepen bilateral practical cooperation in various areas, and actively participate in the the Belt and Road Initiative. The Colombian side hopes to intensify exchanges between legislative institutions with the Chinese side and support the friendly cooperation between the two countries.
