China will work with Brazil and take President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's upcoming visit as an opportunity to promote the upgrading of mutually beneficial cooperation in various fields, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said on Tuesday.
Wang made the remarks during a daily news briefing when asked about Lula's state visit to China from April 12 to 15.
After Lula postponed his visit to China due to illness, the two sides have been in close communication on the visit, according to the spokesperson.
Lula will lead a large delegation to China shortly after his recovery, which shows how both sides have attached great importance to this visit and the development of bilateral relations, Wang said.
He added that the two countries will work together to upgrade mutually beneficial cooperation in various fields, which will inject positive energy into the promotion of solidarity and cooperation among developing countries and joint efforts to cope with global challenges.
