Kyrgyz President hails CPC for great achievements

BISHKEK: “I would give the highest mark for the great achievements of the Communist Party (of China) in building and reforming China,” President of Kyrgyzstan Sadyr Zhaparov has said in an exclusive interview with media.
Thanks to the wise leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC), “the People’s Republic of China has made great strides and has become a powerful modern state,” he said, stressing China’s important role in the international arena.
The Kyrgyz leader said that the CPC has always defended the fundamental interests of the Chinese people.
“One of the main reasons for the victory of the Chinese Communist Party in the revolution and the successful construction of socialism is that the party enjoys the sincere support and love of the entire people,” he added.
Zhaparov noted China’s achievements in poverty alleviation. “Thus, 770 million people in China have (been) lifted out of poverty since the late 1970s,” he said, adding that China has become a major contributor to global poverty reduction.
The Kyrgyz president believed that China has achieved such great results thanks to Chinese President Xi Jinping’s unprecedented determination and political wisdom.
“He is pursuing deep reforms with extensive experience in domestic and international relations. I would say that he sets an example of leadership in planning the country’s future and mobilizing the strength of the Chinese people,” Zhaparov said.
Speaking about bilateral relations, Zhaparov highlighted that China is an eternal neighbor and friend for Kyrgyzstan.
“The border between the two countries will always be the border of friendly cooperation,” he said.
“We are proud of our friendly, good-neighborly and comprehensive strategic cooperation with China, and highly value such cooperation,” the president added. “In addition, the positions of the two countries are similar on most international and regional issues,” he said, expressing Kyrgyzstan’s interest in the further development of comprehensive cooperation with China based on openness and mutual trust, which is in the interests of both peoples. – Agencies
