Both leaders agreed to raise the level of relations between their countries to "strategic partnership against all odds," state television CCTV reported.
In a meeting at the Great Hall of the People, Xi expressed support for the Bolivarian revolution's efforts to maintain "the sovereignty, national dignity and social stability of Venezuela's country and to resist external interference." The Chinese leader also highlighted that Maduro's visit reflects the fraternal friendship between both countries.
Xi assured that China and Venezuela are "good friends and partners" who "trust each other" and cooperate in various fields and recalled that next year will mark 50 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two nations.
