Costa Rica's president says he hopes his country's relations with China will deepen.

Oscar Arias made the remarks during a meeting with a Chinese delegation in Costa Rica's capital of San Jose. The delegation was led by Assistant Foreign Minister He Yafei.

Arias says the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries opened a new chapter in bilateral ties. Arias also reiterated his country's adherence to the one-China policy.

He Yafei conveyed a letter from President Hu Jintao to Arias, in which the Chinese president spoke highly of the historic contribution made by Arias himself to Sino-Costa Rican ties.
