Chinese Vice President Han Zheng spoke on Thursday with Vice President of the Federative Republic of Brazil Geraldo Alckmin, and they co-chaired the seventh meeting of the Sino-Brazilian High-Level Commission for Concertation and Cooperation (COSBAN), in Beijing.

Han said that under the strategic guidance of the two heads of state, China and Brazil have firmly supported each other on issues concerning each other’s core interests, taken win-win cooperation as the driving force, constantly deepened political mutual trust and strengthened strategic coordination. Cooperation in various fields, such as economy, trade and the aerospace industry, has achieved tangible results, setting an example of South-South cooperation.

China and Brazil are large developing countries and important members of the BRICS with broad common interests, Han said. China has always viewed and developed its relations with Brazil from a strategic height and long-term perspective and has placed bilateral relations as a diplomatic priority.

Han called on both sides to further strengthen strategic communication and deepen mutually beneficial friendship and pragmatic cooperation.

Alckmin said that Brazil-China relations go beyond the bilateral scope and have strategic significance and global influence. Brazil attaches great importance to the development of relations with China and is willing to take the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties and the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the COSBAN mechanism as a new starting point to further strengthen communication and coordination with China, and deepen and expand exchanges and cooperation in various fields, to elevate bilateral relations to a new level.

Brazil is willing to coordinate and cooperate closely with China on multilateral platforms such as the United Nations, the G20 and BRICS to jointly safeguard multilateralism, Alckmin said.

Han and Alckmin listened to the various topics shared by the heads of relevant departments of the two countries on trade, new industrialization, political relations, agriculture and livestock, financial policies and infrastructure, among others, as well as the work reports of 11 subcommittees and the Business Council China-Brazil, and praised the positive results achieved in cooperation in various fields.
