Xi Jinping has been elected general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee for the second term at the first plenary session of the 19th Central Committee. His name and doctrine have been written into the constitution. 

He's now likely the most powerful leader this country's known since Mao Zedong.

As he stepped out to unveil his seven-member leadership team of the party's politburo standing committee, which the official party voice People's Daily called a "dream team" — it was clear he had manoeuvred well.

Prime Minister of Nepal and President of the Nepali Congress, Sher Bahadur Deuba, sent a congratulatory message to President of the People's Republic of China and General Secretary of the Communist Party of China, Xi Jinping, on the successful holding of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, and his re-election as the General Secretary of the Party on Wednesday. 

According to a press release issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, PM Deuba said the re-election of Xi is an indication of the great confidence that the Chinese people and the Communist Party of China have placed in his dynamic leadership. 

Noting unprecedented strides made by China in socio-economic and technological development and in improving the quality of life of the Chinese people, PM Deuba has applauded Xi's vision of 'global community of common destiny for all humankind' and greater cooperation among nations for economic prosperity. 

Moreover, the PM also expressed his confidence that Nepal-China bilateral relations would continue to grow in multiple dimensions and reach a new level in the days to come. 

Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump has congratulated Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping on his "extraordinary elevation" after his election. 

The two leaders are due to hold talks at a state visit to China next month, having met at the G20 summit in July. 

The pair also discussed North Korea and trade, President Trump said in a tweet.
