President Hu Jintao Wednesday exchanged congratulations with the presidents of Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia to mark 55 years of diplomatic relations.

The messages of good will come as the country celebrates its 55th anniversary of the founding of New China.

Hu said in a message to Hungarian President Ferenc Madl that he made a successful visit to Hungary in June. The two countries agreed to promote their relations to a partnership of co-operation, Hu said.

Madl said there has been a long-time friendship between the two peoples and that his country is willing to enhance co-operation with China in various fields.

In his message to Czech President Vaclav Klaus, Hu said Klaus' successful visit to China in April has boosted bilateral relations. He said China is ready to work with the Czech side to bring bilateral ties to a new level.

Klaus said China has made notable achievements since its reform and opening up drive in the late 1970s. Bilateral relations will continue to develop in a way that will benefit both sides.

In a message to Slovak President Ivan Gashparovic, Hu said better co-operation is the common wish of the two peoples and is in the interests of both countries. China would like to work together with Slovakia to promote bilateral relations.

Gashparovic said the 2003 joint declaration signed by Chinese and Slovakian leaders laid a good foundation for the further development of friendship of the two countries and the two peoples.
