In messages addressed to Chinese President Xi Jinping, they spoke highly of China's remarkable achievements in various fields under the strong leadership of the CPC and look forward to deepening inter-party cooperation with the CPC.

Chairman of Timor-Leste's National Congress for Timorese Reconstruction Xanana Gusmao and General Secretary Francisco Kalbuady Lay said the scale of China's fight against COVID-19 led by the CPC and the Chinese government was unprecedented in human history.

They said China's epidemic response, in which people's well-being is put first, has played an important role in safeguarding global health security.

Timor-Leste Prime Minister Taur Matan Ruak, also president of the Popular Liberation Party, expressed gratitude for China's steadfast support of Timor-Leste's fight for independence and the restoration of independence.

He said his party wished a new era of progress and prosperity for the CPC in its path towards a second centenary.

Vice Prime Minister Armanda Berta dos Santos said what the CPC has accomplished over the past 100 years has inspired many developing countries like Timor-Leste, and she expected more advances in CPC development.

Santos also serves as the leader of the political party Kmanek Haburas Unidade Nasional Timor Oan (KHUNTO).
