NZ Labour Party Rep. Meets Top Chinese Communists
|Maryan Street with Cui Tiankai, Beijing, March 3, 2011|
On March 3, 2011, Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Cui Tiankai met with Maryan Street, New Zealand Labour Party's Spokesperson for Foreign Affairs, Trade and Overseas Development Assistance, who was visiting China at the invitation of the International Department of the Communist Party of China Central Committee.
Both sides exchanged views on "China-New Zealand relations and other issues".
Maryan Street was once very close to the Pro-Soviet New Zealand Socialist Unity Party, the remnants of which now look to China as a leader of the world communist movement.
