Chinese President Hu Jintao said here Saturday that China has set an unswerving policy on consolidating ties with Cuba, and the policy will not alter regardless of changes in international situation.

Hu made the remarks at a meeting with Jose Ramon Machado Ventura, member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of Cuba Central Committee and vice president of the Council of State of Cuba.

With concerted efforts, China believes the bilateral friendship between China and Cuba would be developed better, said Hu, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee.

In recent years, China and Cuba, as well as the Communist parties of China and Cuba, frequented exchange of high-profile visits, enhanced mutual trust and expanded cooperation in various fields, said Hu.

As both parties adhere to socialism, explore the path of development fit for their own national conditions and are devoted to economic development to improve the people’s living standards, there is a solid foundation for further cementing China-Cuba ties,Hu said.

Hu valued the achievements made by the Communist Party of Cuba,led by Fidel Castro Ruz, in leading the Cuban people to pushing forward the socialist cause.

Machado said that the two parties and two peoples supported each other in building socialism and closely cooperated in international issues, which greatly contributed to world peace anddevelopment.

The Cuban people admired the achievements of the Chinese people,Machado said, adding that Cuba is willing to strengthen cooperation with China in all fields.

The President of China,
President Hu,

May I give my humble view on China’ relations with other countries as i forsee if there is no war with Tapei, within the nexe 30-50 years it will be the most powerful and economical stable country in the world unlike USA under Bush especially is the biggest bully in the world
China must at all costs build its military strength mederising it with out any delay. Every minute counts.
China must think ways and means to spread its goodwill and wings through out the world like what USA is doing but with different objectives.  Must win the hearts and mind of the people of the world to gain more respect.
As for Taiwan, I think China is too soft.  Everyone knows America is behind forever using the DIVIDE & RULE POLICY. China is also too soft to USA as i know the reason why. It had at times stoop to conquer.
The recent statements made by the scoundrel Chen as without doubt he wants to seek independence which as i agree must be stopped at all costs. He is a traitor. Something must be done to his party. He is the key trouble maker must be stopped at all costs. I hope somethinmg can be done.  At times China must be as cruel and merciless as the Americans doing at Iraq which they created mess after mess and yet the stupid people support Bush as it is a sad day for America.
China I am sure can and must change the world. There are countless of ways to achieve your aims. May I humbly suggest the following:-

1. Make use of the 1.25 billion Chinese as everyone is important utulise to the maximum,
2. Corruption must be cleared or minimised as here in Spore. It is very difficult as this shall take time. There are numerous ways and means to achieve it as this is very important to win the hearts and mind of both the Chinese people and the world,
3. Taiwan question. It must be unted at all costs. It is 55 years too long to be true. There are countless ways and means to punish Chen the key trouble maker must be stoipped at all costs,
4.  Improve the standard of the people especially the Western partparts of China as there are too many poor people although their standards have improved much,
5.  Growth-never restrict China’ growth-make use of the poplation for both agriculture, manufacturing, etc to the hilt and especially the export market,
6.  Foreign service- increase the staffing and utilise to the maximum as Chinese are capable of hard work anf long hours of service, I am only allowed 2500 words
