Peruís Foreign Affairs Minister Meets Chinaís Vice President

BEIJING Ė Peruís Foreign Affairs Minister Nestor Popolizio began on Monday his official visit to China by meeting with Chinese Vice President Wang Qishan, with both emphasizing the longstanding ties between the two countries.

In the meeting, hosted at the Zhongnanhai Purple Light Pavilion, the headquarters of Chinaís central government, Wang said that both countries have always maintained a strong bond based on the 400-year presence of the Chinese community in Peru.

Wang, a former Central Commission for Discipline Inspection head and architect of the anti-corruption campaign in the country who has been vice president since March, said that it could be seen on the map that both countries are separated by a huge geographic distance, but said that according to a Chinese proverb a close friendship can remove the distance.

Popolizio also emphasized the close bilateral relations and said that both Peru and China are heirs of a millenary culture and a historical legacy which has served as the foundation of Peruís close relationship with China, the Andean countryís major trade partner.

Popolizio added that 10 percent of the Peruvian population has Chinese blood in its veins and the Chinese community has contributed in a major way to the national identity.

Popolizio would be meeting later on Monday with Ning Jizhe, Vice Chairman of the National Development & Reform Commission of China.

Both dignitaries will preside over the Strategic Dialogue Mechanism for Economic Cooperation, with the objective of maintaining bilateral relations and discussion on trade and investment among other areas of bilateral interests.

On Tuesday, the last day of the official visit, Popolizio is set to meet with his Chinese counterpart, Wang Yi, and hold a press conference to take stock of the visit whose objective is to strengthen trade and political ties between the two countries.
