MACEDONIA - CHINA TO STRENGTHEN COOPERATION



National.

Presidents of the Republic of Macedonia - Branko Crvenkovski and of People's Republic of China - Hu Jintao signed Wednesday a joint statement for strengthening the mutual cooperation.

In the statement both sides highly evaluate the impressive progress made regarding the bilateral ties following their normalisation and emphasize that the Macedonian-Chinese traditional friendship is mutual treasure for both people and firm foundation for further development of bilateral ties, President's Cabinet said in a press release.

Both Macedonia and China believe that their people's wish is further development of friendly relations. Hence, both countries in the statement agree to resume improving them, as well as to strengthen the overall cooperation, including dialogues at high level, reinforcing the inter-governmental, inter-parliamentary and inter-party exchange and cooperation in order to enhance the mutual understanding and confidence and to protect the joint interests.

The statement underlines that the business cooperation should be a priority in bilateral relations, due to which both Macedonia and China are willing to enable complete freedom to relevant government bodies and to the Macedonian-Chinese Mixed Business Committee.

Macedonia and China, in compliance with the statement, will expand exchange and cooperation in the fields of culture, education, sport, media, tourism, agriculture, health system and military affairs.

In the statement, the Macedonian side reaffirms its support for the policy of one China, stressing that there is only one China in the world, that its government is the sole legitimate government representing entire China and that Taiwan is inalienable part of China's territory.

- The Macedonian side reiterates that no officially ties will be established and no officially exchanges will be executed with Taiwan, opposing its membership in any international organisation. Macedonia respects and supports all efforts made by China for national reunification, reads the statement.

The Chinese side in the statement notes that it respects and supports Macedonia's independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity and its people's choice to develop in accordance with its national reality.

- China comprehends Macedonia's firm wish to use its constitutional name within the frameworks of UN system and backs the country's positive efforts for resolving the issue. Furthermore, China highly evaluates the Macedonian success in maintaining social stability, economic growth improvement and ameliorating citizens' living standards, reads the statement.

Both Macedonia and China abide by UN Charter's objectives and principles and support its leading role in maintaining peace and security in the world.

President Crvenkovski, who is leading the Macedonian state delegation comprising of Vice Prime Minister Zivko Jankulovski and director of Agency for Sports and Youth Ivica Georgievski, over the course of the China visit is scheduled to hold meetings with PM Wen Jiabao and Wu Bangguo, the Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress.
