Honorable Mr. C. P. Mainali, General Secretary of the Communist Party of Nepal (Marxist-Leninist),
Today is the 91st Anniversary of the Founding of the Communist Party of China. I feel very honored to be invited to attend this talk program on "Nepal policy of the CPC on the changing global background" held by Communist Party of Nepal (Marxist-Leninist) to mark this important event. I’m very glad to celebrate the birthday of CPC with so many leaders from parties and friendship organizations. I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to the organizer, Communist Party of Nepal (ML), and all the friends present at the ceremony today.
Founding in 1921, the CPC has continuously integrated the universal principles of Marxism-Leninism with the concrete practice of the Chinese revolution and construction, and grown up from a small party with fifty members into a large ruling party which has a sixty-year experience of governance and more than eighty million party members, and has led the Chinese people to win the great victory against imperialist aggression and in socialist construction, to achieve the historical mission of the national independence and people's liberation, and to open the glorious journey of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
The present world is undergoing tremendous developments, changes and adjustments. The progress towards political multi-polarization and economic globalization is developing in depth. All countries have become increasingly interdependent, and the cooperation based on equality and mutual benefit has gradually turned into the common views of the international community. However, we should also recognize that the new international political and economic order has not yet been established, and the development of world economy is also facing major challenges. Every member of the international community is now threatened by climate change, energy security, food security, terrorism and other non-traditional security issues.
According to the present situation, China will continue to uphold the banner of peace, development and cooperation, pursue a win-win strategy of opening up, and share the opportunities brought by the development of economy; China will continue to consolidate and develop the friendly relations with the developing countries, to cement traditional friendship and strengthen communication and coordination with them, and to uphold the common interests of developing countries; China will continue to follow the foreign policy of friendship and partnership, and to push forward the practical cooperation with our neighbors, strengthen communication among various fields, and further promote the traditional relationship in order to create a regional environment featuring harmony, inclusion and win-win cooperation together with neighboring countries.
The Communist Party of China has always attached great importance to developing friendly relations with foreign political parties and organizations under the basic principles of independence, equality, mutual respect and noninterference in each other's internal affairs, and constantly enriches the content and form of exchanges between political parties. At present, the CPC maintains various types of friendly exchanges with more than 600 political parties and organizations in more than 160 countries and regions around the world. The all-sided, multi-channeled, wide-ranged, and deep-rooted pattern of inter-party exchanges has been continuously deepened. The Communist Party of Nepal (ML), as an important political party of Nepal, has maintained good communication and cooperation with the CPC for many years, and has made great contributions to the comprehensive cooperative partnership featuring ever-lasting friendship between China and Nepal. In the future, we will continue to maintain the close inter-party exchanges with CPN (ML), intensify the traditional friendship between the two parties, and jointly promote the bilateral friendly and cooperative relations to a new level.
Once again, I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to CPN (ML) for today’s celebration. May our friendship last forever.
