In a congratulatory message, Xi voiced his wish that under the leadership of Rousseff, who was reelected to a second term on Sunday, the Brazilian people will keep making new, greater achievements in building their country.

The Chinese president recalled his July state visit to Brazil, where he also attended the sixth summit of the emerging-market bloc of BRICS grouping Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, and a conference with Latin American and Caribbean leaders.

Xi said that during his in-depth, fruitful talks with Rousseff, they had exchanged views on China-Brazil relations and a wide range of issues of common concern.

"We unanimously decided to deepen the mutually beneficial and friendly cooperation between China and Brazil in various fields, and to jointly promote development of the world order toward a more impartial and more rational direction," he said.

"I attaches great importance to developing China-Brazil relations, and am willing to make concerted efforts with you to strive for sustained and rapid development of the comprehensive strategic partnership between China and Brazil," he added.
