The CPC has met with 400 political parties in more than 160 countries in recent years, said Guo Yezhou, vice minister of the International Department of the CPC Central Committee.

The CPC not only closely interacts with other socialist countries and consolidates relations with political parties in neighboring countries, but also enhances dialogue and communication with major political parties worldwide, Guo said.

“[These efforts] help the rest of the world better understand the CPC’s major policy initiatives … contribute positively to the development of relations between China and other countries as well as to the lofty cause of peace and development of mankind,” Guo said.

Guo also talked about China’s support to efforts by the Myanmar government to deal with violent attacks in Myanmar’s Rakhine state.

The UN refugee agency said in September that 73,000 Rohingya fled to Bangladesh after violence killed hundreds of people in Myanmar's restive Rakhine state since late August.

“China supports the Myanmar government for four reasons – China and the CPC always stick to the principles of not interfering with other countries’ domestic affairs … the experience of others exposed the evil consequences of interference … based on our friendship, we believe in the Myanmar government and its people … and as a neighboring country, if Myanmar suffers instability, China would be affected,” Guo said.
