PORT MORESBY, Papua New Guinea (The National, Aug. 23) – A delegation from Papua New Guinea’s National Alliance Party met last week with Liu Yunshan, head of the Department of Publicity of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee in China, according to the Xinhuan newspaper.

The newspaper reported that Mr Liu, also a member of the Political Bureau and a member of the Secretariat of the CPC Central Committee, answered some questions on the organisation and ideological theory of the CPC.

It said Mr Liu appreciated the PNG’s consistent adherence to the one-China policy.

The delegation was led by Don Polye, the party’s deputy leader (Highlands) and Minister for Transport and Civil Aviation.

Xinhuan said the delegation visited China at the invitation of the International Department of the CPC Central Committee.

Meanwhile, Xinduan also reported in its July 19 online edition that the CPC hopes to further strengthen its friendly exchanges and cooperation with Papua New Guinean political parties.

Xinduan said Wang Jiarui, head of the International Department of the CPC Central Committee, made the remark during his meeting with Sir Rabbie Namaliu, Papua New Guinean Minister for Foreign Affairs and Immigration.

It said Mr Wang spoke highly of the achievements China and Papua New Guinea have scored in various fields and the present development of the party-to-party exchanges and cooperation between the two nations.

Mr Wang said China is ready to step up friendly cooperation with all the political parties in Papua New Guinea in a bid to push forward the bilateral relations, the newspaper said.

It also reported Sir Rabbie as saying that the party-to-party exchanges have deepened the mutual understanding and friendship and he hoped the future exchanges will exert more influences to the development of the relations between the two nations.
