China-South Korea relations are facing an opportunity of great development. To inject fresh impetus into the bilateral ties is an issue for both countries and a major task of my trip.
China is now South Korea's largest trading partner, No. 1 export destination and import source, and largest destination of overseas investment of South Korea. The largest number of foreign students and foreign tourists also come from China.
One cannot be successful without trust.
The two countries shall maintain their relationship of good neighborliness and friendship and enhance mutual trust.
The two sides shall stick to mutually-beneficial cooperation and consolidate convergence of interests.
The two countries shall safeguard regional peace and stability.
The two countries shall maintain cultural exchanges and strengthen friendship.
Cooperation between China and South Korea will not only become an accelerator of their own development, but also a stabilizer to regional and world peace.
