Beijing, July 18 (Xinhua) The Communist Party of China (CPC) said Friday it is willing to work with Japan’s Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) to promote strategic partnership. Wang Jiarui, head of the international department of the CPC central committee, made the remarks during a meeting with Yamasaki Taku, former LDP secretary-general.

Wang said President Hu Jintao’s state visit to Japan in May and his presence in the outreach session of the Group of Eight (G8) Summit in Japan have pushed forward China-Japan relationships.

He said the CPC was willing to cooperate with the LDP to help in building consensus between the two governments on various issues and boost political trust.

Yamasaki reaffirmed Japan’s sympathy with China’s May 12 earthquake victims and wished Beijing Olympic Games a success.

He said the Japanese government and the LDP both attached great importance to the development of China-Japan ties and was willing to promote bilateral relationship through party-to-party exchange.
