The first meeting of the dialogue mechanism was launched in June last year in Beijing, where the two sides exchanged views on the impact of the international financial crisis and what measures the two countries should take in responding to the crisis.
Participants at the upcoming second meeting, which has the theme of "the Post-Crisis Mission and Role of the Chinese and Russian Ruling Parties," will have an in-depth exchange of views on how to handle complicated issues and enhance their ruling capacity in the new circumstances, Wang said.
Party-to-party exchanges are an important component of the strategic partnership between the two countries, he said.
Since the mid-1990s, the CPC has gradually set up and strengthened inter-party friendly exchanges with all major political parties in Russia, based on the principles of independence, complete equality, mutual respect and non-interference in each other's internal affairs, Wang said.
Recent years have witnessed rapid development of friendly cooperation between the two parties, Wang said. That cooperation, including the dialogue mechanism between the two parties, has played a unique role in advancing the strategic partnership between the two countries, he added.
At the second meeting of the dialogue mechanism, the two parties will have an extensive and in-depth dialogue on such topics as the international situation in the post-crisis period, their concept of development and development strategies, party organizations and ideological building, said Wang.
The achievements from the second meeting of the dialogue mechanism would provide an important platform for the two parties to foster the innovative development of the strategic partnership between the two countries, he said.
On plans for future party-to-party exchanges, Wang proposed the two parties make continued efforts to maintain the momentum of frequent high-level exchanges, improve the dialogue mechanism, enhance exchanges between youths and local cadres, and set up more platforms for local governments and companies of the two countries in engaging in pragmatic cooperation.Source: Xinhua 【1】 【2】
