BEIJING -- China vows to advance its all-round strategic partnership with Brazil, Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Monday.
In response to a question about the re-election of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff at a daily press conference, Hua said Chinese President Xi Jinping has already sent a congratulatory message to Rousseff on her re-election.
Hua said that under the leadership of President Rousseff, the Brazilian people will continue to make even greater achievements in the cause of national development.
Hua said that, in recent years, China-Brazil relations have seen all-round, rapid growth. President Xi paid a state visit to Brazil in July and held productive talks with President Rousseff, during which they reached broad consensus.
Hua said China has always attached great importance to and perceived its relationship with Brazil from a long-term, strategic height. She said China is ready to further deepen mutual trust, increase multi-dimensional cooperation and lift its level of practical cooperation with Brazil.
Rousseff, 66, won in Sunday's run-off with opposition candidate Aecio Neves. The presidential race was considered the most bitterly contested in the South American country in two decades.
