China and Peru have maintained traditional friendly and cooperative relations and China wishes to push forward such relations, said Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Zhang Qiyue at Tuesday's press conference.
Zhang made this remark in response to a question regarding the recent situation in Peru.
The Chinese government has been attentive to the development in Peru, and China is pleased to see Peru's Congress leader Valentin Paniagua sworn in last Wednesday as the interim president of Peru.
China hopes Peru will restore political stability and maintain economic development, which will serve the interests of the country as well as its people.
