Yang Jiechi Meets with Secretary-General Nabil Elaraby of the Arab League

On June 1 local time, State Councilor Yang Jiechi met with Secretary-General Nabil Elaraby of the Arab League at the headquarters of the Arab League in Cairo.

Yang Jiechi noted that President Xi Jinping proposed to jointly build the “Belt and Road” by China and the Arab states last year, charting the course for the development of China-Arab relations and construction of China-Arab Cooperation Forum. With the joint efforts of both sides, the construction of the “Belt and Road” by China and the Arab states has constantly reaped early harvest. In the next step, both sides should take the China-Arab traditional friendship as the cornerstone to intensify high-level exchanges, boost political mutual trust, elevate the level of practical cooperation, seek win-win cooperation and actively forge the China-Arab community of common interests. China supports the Arab states to independently explore their development path in accordance with their own national conditions, settle regional hotspot issues through such political approaches as dialogue and consultation, and resolve differences and disputes through inclusive and peaceful political dialogue.

Nabil Elaraby said that China always stands for justice, understands and supports the just cause of the Arab states and upholds justice for developing nations, serving as a reliable and good friend of other developing countries. The Arab side is willing to, together with China, carry out all-round cooperation in an in-depth way, jointly build the “Belt and Road”, deepen the construction of the Arab-China Cooperation Forum, boost Arab-China exchanges and mutual learning, intensify coordination in international and regional affairs and safeguard world peace and stability.
