Xi's France visit: New starting point for common development

11:30, March 25, 2019

Chinese President Xi Jinping is paying a state visit to France as the two countries celebrate their 55th anniversary of diplomatic ties.

Fifty-five years ago, France became the first major Western country to establish diplomatic relations with China.

In a signed article published in a French newspaper ahead of his arrival, Xi said he would bring goodwill to France, a special friendship to the French people and the expectations to enhance relations.

Xi said his expectations are based on the two countries' past 55 years of mutual support and win-win cooperation, and from the great potential and future prospects that our bilateral relations hold.

China and France now stand at a new starting point. Xi called on the two countries to join hands and set off on a common journey towards new and greater achievements in their cooperation.
