BEIJING, July 3 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping met Friday with Daniel Kwelagobe, chairman of Botswana Democratic Party, according to a press release from the International Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee.

Xi hailed China-Botswana relationship, saying the two countries have witnessed fruitful cooperation in areas like trade, investment, culture and education, said the press release.

Since the CPC and Botswana Democratic Party established party-to-party relations 30 years ago, the two parties have conducted various forms of exchanges, which helped to increase mutual understanding and push forward bilateral relationship.

The CPC would further deepen exchanges and cooperation with the ruling party of Botswana, said Xi.

Xi said China would make joint efforts with the African countries including Botswana to lift China-Africa strategic partnership to a new level.

Kwelagobe, on his first visit to China since taking office as the party chairman, appreciated China's support for Botswana's development, saying the Botswanian government and ruling party would continue to follow one-China policy.

Kwelagobe also spoke highly of the constructive role China has played in international affairs.
