Chavez calls for strengthen Venezuela–China economic cooperation

President Hugo Chavez said Tuesday that he hoped China and Venezuela could further boost economic and trade cooperation to benefit their two peoples.

He made the remarks at the closing ceremony of a meeting of the China-Venezuela mixed committee, a group aimed at consolidating and strengthening trade cooperation between the two countries.

Chavez said Venezuela and China have witnessed constant progress in their ties since the two countries established diplomatic relations 30 years ago, and especially after they forged a strategic partnership seven years ago.

He said China's rapid development in the political, economic, social and cultural arenas has set a model from which the whole world can learn, reports Peoples Daily.

China's assistance in the field of agriculture will be appreciated, he said.

Venezuela has rich reserves of oil and natural gas, said Chavez. He expressed a hope that Venezuela and China could cooperate to tap the energy resources.

During the meeting, Zhang Xiaoqiang, deputy head of China's Development and Reform Commission, said that China has attached great importance to the Venezuelan people's welfare as the two countries carry out a mutually beneficial cooperation.

A great number of projects constructed by China have been put into use in Venezuela, which have improved the lives of local people, he said, informs Xinhua.

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
