Chinese President Xi Jinping on Monday called on his country and Costa Rica to enhance exchanges and cooperation between their legislatures so as to promote the rule of law in the two countries.

Xi made the remarks while meeting with Costa Rican Legislative Assembly President Luis Fernando Mendoza and representatives of political parties in the Central American country.

He noted that prior to the establishment of the diplomatic ties between China and Costa Rica in 2007, China's National People's Congress and the Costa Rican Legislative Assembly had already carried out friendly exchanges.

The Chinese leader expressed the hope that strengthening inter-parliamentary exchanges and cooperation will help the two nations enhance mutual understanding and friendship, and promote the development of the bilateral ties.
