China and Russia's ruling parties held a dialogue on party building and national governance to promote the development of the bilateral relations.
The fifth meeting of the China-Russia ruling parties dialogue mechanism was held between the Communist Party of China (CPC) and United Russian party under the theme of "Party's ruling ability and modernization of national governance system" on Tuesday in Beijing.
The two parties should make full use of the dialogue mechanism to exchange experience and learn from each other to promote further development of bilateral relations, said Liu Yunshan, a member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau.
Chinese President Xi Jinping, also general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, said in a congratulatory letter to the meeting that the party-to-party exchange is playing a "unique" role in the development of bilateral relations.
The dialogue mechanism and forum between the two parties has built an effective platform for them to discuss strategic issues such as the two countries' relations and ruling party construction, Xi said.
He added that the meeting will help the two parties strengthen capacity building and ability in national governance.
Russian President Vladimir Putin echoed Xi in his congratulatory letter that the two ruling parties' cooperation played an important role for bilateral ties including promoting solutions of major issues between the two countries and coordinating their stance on regional and international affairs.
