Chinese President Xi Jinping on Friday sent congratulations to Ratu Wiliame Katonivere on his taking office as Fijian president.


Xi pointed out that Fiji is the first Pacific island country to establish diplomatic relations with New China. Since the establishment of diplomatic ties 46 years ago, China-Fiji relations have made great progress and become a model of equal treatment and friendly cooperation between large and small countries. In the face of the novel coronavirus pneumonia epidemic, China and Fiji are in the same boat, watching and helping each other, and the friendship and cooperation between the two countries are deepening day by day. I attach great importance to the development of China-Fiji relations, and I am willing to work with President Katonivere to strengthen all-round friendly exchanges and pragmatic cooperation between the two countries, open up new broad prospects for China-Fiji comprehensive strategic partnership, and better benefit the two countries and their peoples.
