Wang Yi: I Hope to Push China-New Zealand Relations for More "Firsts"

On October 18, 2016, after holding talks with visiting Foreign Minister McCully of New Zealand in Beijing, Foreign Minister Wang Yi expressed in the joint press conference that China-New Zealand relations have maintained a momentum of positive development in recent years. Both sides have created, with joint efforts, many “firsts” in the relations between China and developed countries. Both sides have agreed to adhere to the principle of mutual trust and mutual benefit, introduce innovative thinking, tap into the potential and further promote China-New Zealand comprehensive strategic partnership for greater development in bilateral relations based on current high-level development.

Wang Yi commented that people in New Zealand have long enjoyed the reputation as innovative pioneers. China is ready to join hands with New Zealand to enhance political trust, strengthen dialogue and communication, deepen practical cooperation, and push bilateral relations for a new record of more “firsts”, so that China-New Zealand relations can be a model of harmonious coexistence, mutual benefit and win-win results among countries with different social systems and at different development stages.
