|Friday, 08 August 2008|
Chinese President Hu Jintao met in Beijing on Thursday with President of Sri Lanka Mahinda Rajapakse, who is here to attend the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympic Games and other activities.
Hu first extended a warm welcome to Rajapakse on behalf of the Chinese government and people, saying he still clearly remembered the amicable meeting with Rajapakse during the annual session of the Boao Forum for Asia, held in April in Hainan of China.
After China's Sichuan Province was rocked by a powerful earthquake in May, the Sri Lankan president not only sent a letter of condolence to China, but also went to the Chinese embassy in Colombo to mourn the Chinese victims, Hu recalled.
