PRC President Hu Jintao and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, have both spoken of their willingness to bring their strategic relationship to a higher level. Their statements came on Thursday during Chavez's visit to China. Hu Jintao thanked the Venezuelan government for their acceptance of the One China policy and welcomed its recognition of China's full market economy status.
China would like to join hands with Venezuela to bring the Sino-Venezuelan strategic partnership to a higher level, said President Hu Jintao while talking with visiting Venezuelan President Hugo Rafael Chavez Frias Thursday in Beijing.

Hu spoke highly of the achievements made by both sides since they established diplomatic ties 30 years ago. He said during the 30 years, especially since President Chavez came into power, bilateral relations have been deepened and more high-level visits have been carried out. The two countries enhanced mutual understanding and political trust, expanded trade and economic cooperation and supported and closely cooperated with each other in international affairs.

The Chinese government thanks the Venezuelan government for its adherence to the one-China policy, and appreciates and welcomes its recognition of China's full market economy status, said Hu.

It would seem that China is making diplomatic efforts to create close relations with nations that have fallen foul of the US & Co, in particular over the 'War on Terror'. Recent weeks have seen the EU lift an arms embargo on China, and Free Trade talks between China and New Zealand. China has also negotiated military links with Russia.

Heh, I was just thinking the same thing about them picking up the leftover scraps... The Russia-china alliance is no more then a money deal. They both have an eye on the trigger with Russia obviously having the edge.
But thats besides the point Who are they going to befriend next?

I bet they have!

Oil provides approximately one third of this South American nation's gross domestic product, roughly 80 per cent of export earnings and about 40 per cent of all government income.

President Hugo Chavez, a self-proclaimed "revolutionary" who has vowed to diversify the nation's oil-dependent economy, touted impressive economic performance during a speech late Monday.

"The revolution's economic project is showing once again how successful it is, that this economic programme is efficient and that we are headed in the right direction," said Chavez.

Well china is making sure it opens his markets to anybody that the US has put a tag on.

I guess China is becoming very smart knowing that its going to need oil and in very large quantities very soon.

I wonder if China will offer to venezuela their protection from invadors in case something happen in the future.

After all it will be more friendly to sell Oil to China than to the US.
