Hu Jintao Meets Cuban Communist Party Official 

Hu Jintao, member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the
Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), told a senior official
of the Cuban Communist Party that China will always back the just cause of Cuba.

Hu, who is also vice-president of China, told Juan Carlos Robinson, a member of
the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba,
and his delegation that the CPC, the Government and the people of China will
continue to support the just cause of the Communist Party, the government and
the people of Cuba.

Leaders of the two countries and parties have kept in close contact over the
years. As a result, they have increased mutual understanding and friendship and
brought bilateral relations to a higher level, Hu said.

Hu thanked the Cuban side for its firm support of China on the issues of Taiwan,
human rights and Tibet. He also spoke highly of the achievements the Communist
Party and people of Cuba have scored under the leadership of Fidel Castro in
building socialism and safeguarding national integrity and independence.

cooperation with China over the past 40 years. He said he is confident that
under the joint efforts of both sides, the relations between the two parties and
two countries will continue to grow stronger.
