The Communist Party of China (CPC) has been fundamental for the social and economic development achieved by China over the past decades, Adan Chavez, vice president of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), has said.
Speaking of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the CPC, Chavez, who is also Venezuelan ambassador to Cuba, told Xinhua that for the Chinese ruling party, "it has been 100 years of fruitful work, great victories, and huge progress for the happiness of the Chinese people and humanity."
Chavez, who visited China four times between 2017 and 2019, said that the strong leadership of the CPC and its leaders have played an essential role in eradicating absolute poverty across China and in the country's scientific development.
"We have witnessed how the Chinese people have rendered huge support for their government and the CPC while working together in keeping with principles of socialism with Chinese characteristics," he said.
Referring to the third volume of "Xi Jinping: The Governance of China," the senior Venezuelan party official said the book portrays steps to be taken to succeed in the construction of socialism and a new vision of the Chinese leadership.
He said that China is an inspiration for nations fighting for freedom and sovereignty, adding that the huge progress made by the Chinese people is a clear proof that socialism is an effective solution "to the problems affecting humanity."
The CPC is a pillar of the scientific and technological development made by China, and achievements attained by its people are not only a "role model for the rest of the world, but a symbol of hope," Chavez said.
Regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, he said that China, under the guidance of the CPC, has effectively managed the health emergency by putting people "at the very heart" of measures adopted to contain the spread of the virus nationwide.
"The Communist Party of China has strongly shown its determination to defend the fundamental principles of international relations between the peoples of the world," he told Xinhua.
"In addition," he added, "it has always been in line with the principle of self-determination, non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries, solidarity and respect for international law."
He said that "the role the CPC can continue to play is crucial for years to come" as a reference to other political parties and progressive movements across the world, highlighting the good relations between the CPC and the PSUV.
"The United Socialist Party of Venezuela aims to continue strengthening cooperation links and joint work with the CPC," he said.
