China on Thursday expressed deep condolences over the death of former Argentine President Nestor Kirchner.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu said at a regular news briefing that Kirchner was a brilliant leader of Argentina.

Kirchner was the Argentine president from 2003 to 2007. He was elected the secretary general of the Union of South American Nations in May.

Kirchner was a good friend of the Chinese people and greatly contributed to the development of the China-Argentina strategic partnership, Ma said.

"The Chinese government extends sincere sympathy and solicitude to Kirchner's family, the Argentine government and its people," said Ma.

Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi has sent a message of condolence to his counterpart of Argentina Hector Timerman, Ma added.

Kirchner, 60, died of a heart attack on Wednesday morning at 9:30 a.m. (1230 GMT).
