BEIJING, Feb. 25 (Xinhua) — Chinese President Xi Jinping said Thursday that China stands ready to continue to provide as much support as its capacity allows for Colombia’s combat against the COVID-19 pandemic and carry out vaccine cooperation with the country.
In a phone conversation with Colombian President Ivan Duque, Xi pointed out that China-Colombia relations have maintained steady and sound development in recent years, and bilateral practical cooperation has been continuously optimized and upgraded.
Since the onset of the COVID-19 epidemic, Xi noted, the two sides have extended sympathy and support for each other, demonstrating their profound friendship featuring mutual support and solidarity in overcoming difficulties.
He stressed that as China actively fosters a new development paradigm, it will provide new cooperation opportunities for Colombia, and China is willing to work with the Colombian side to push for greater development of bilateral ties.
The two sides, Xi suggested, should continue to support each other, and better synergize the Belt and Road Initiative and the Colombia-China Initiative.
While deepening traditional cooperation in energy, infrastructure, telecommunications and other areas, they should also actively expand cooperation in such new fields as agriculture, husbandry, new energy, digital economy and creative industries, and deepen exchanges and cooperation in culture, education and sports as well as at local levels, he added.
China, Xi said, will continue to encourage Chinese enterprises to invest and do business in Colombia, and stands ready to strengthen cooperation with Colombia within multilateral frameworks such as the United Nations. Enditem
