In Friday's talks with Quintas, Ma Xiaotian, deputy chief of general staff of the People's Liberation Army (PLA), said that China-Cuba relations have withstood the test of time and international vicissitudes since the two countries established diplomatic relations in 1960, adding that the willingness of their armed forces to strengthen bilateral ties is unwavering.

The PLA attaches great importance to developing relations with the FAR, according to Ma.

Vice Chairman of the Central Military Commission Guo Boxiong and Defense Minister Liang Guanglie also met with Quintas.

Developing bilateral military relations is in accordance with the fundamental interests of the two countries and peoples, Guo said, stressing that China is ready to work with Cuba to strengthen friendship and enhance cooperation.

Liang, also China's State Councilor, said the Chinese government has always attached great importance to developing a friendship with Cuba, noting that military cooperation is conducive to the two countries' national security and development interests.

The Cuban side is very pleased to see China's progress and achievements, Quintas said, vowing that Cuba will always adhere to the one-China policy and support China to safeguard national unity and territorial integrity.
