President Xi Jinping will pay state visits to Ecuador, Peru and Chile later this month.

The president will attend APEC leaders meetings in Lima, Peru as part of the week-long trip starting Nov 17, Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said on Wednesday.

The Foreign Ministry will hold a news conference on Thursday morning to detail the president's trip to Latin America, Lu said.

After becoming the Chinese president in March 2013, Xi has already visited Latin America twice, after going to Trinidad and Tobago, Costa Rica and Mexico in 2013, and to Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela and Cuba in July the following year.

China is a strong supporter of Latin American stability, unity and development.

Last month, Xi said China was ready to work with Latin American countries to forge a community with a shared future, when he met with Uruguayan President Tabare Vazquez in Beijing.

China and Uruguay would maintain high-level exchanges and enhance communication at all levels to promote mutual understanding and trust, he said during the meeting.
