On June 30, 2016, State Councilor Yang Jiechi met at Zhongnanhai with Minister of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources Khalid al-Falih of Saudi Arabia, who was in China to attend the G20 Energy Ministers Meeting.

Yang Jiechi expressed that this year is a milestone for China-Saudi Arabia relations. Early this year, President Xi Jinping paid a state visit to Saudi Arabia and reached broad consensus with King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud. China is willing to, together with Saudi Arabia, actively implement the consensus reached by both heads of state, give full play to the role of China-Saudi Arabia high-level committee, and actively boost cooperation in various fields such as energy, production capacity, infrastructure construction and high technology within the framework of joint-construction of the "Belt and Road" initiative, so as to enrich the connotation of bilateral comprehensive strategic partnership.

Khalid al-Falih said that Saudi Arabia looks forward to further carrying out cooperation with China in such areas as energy and investment, so as to promote bilateral relations to continuously move forward.
