The Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries and the Chinese People’s Institute of Foreign Affairs jointly held the reception commemorating the 40th Anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the United States at the Golden Hall of the Great Hall of People in Beijing on January 10, 2019. Chinese Vice President Wang Qishan attended the reception and delivered a speech.

Vice President Wang Qishan said, 40 years ago, for the basic interests of both peoples and with strategic views and political courage, leaders from both countries have made the historic decision to establish diplomatic relations between China and the US, starting a new chapter in China-US relations. Reviewing those 40 years, China-US relations have progressed through ups and downs, achieving significant results that no one could have imagined then. These achievements have not only brought about enormous benefits to both peoples, but also boosted world peace, stability and prosperity.

He also said, one can only accomplish his mission when he never forgets why he started. 40 years ago, China and the US established diplomatic relations to expand the common interests of both peoples, and strengthen world peace, stability and development. 40 years now, with our bilateral relations on a new course, both sides should remember our original goals and keep coordination, cooperation and stability as basic principals, creating greater dividends for both countries and the world.
