|Wang Qishan Meets with Ecuadorian Foreign Minister Jose Valencia|
On November 1, 2019, Vice President Wang Qishan met with Ecuadorian Foreign Minister Jose Valencia at Zhongnanhai.
Wang Qishan said, in recent years, the political mutual trust between China and Ecuador has been increasingly deepened and the practical cooperation and friendly exchanges between the two sides have yielded fruitful results, setting a good example of equal cooperation, mutual benefit and win-win results between big and small countries. Guided by the important consensus reached by the two heads of state, the two sides should take the opportunity of the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations next year to push bilateral relations into a new stage of high-quality development. Every nation in the world has its source in choosing its own path. The path of socialism with Chinese characteristics chosen by the Chinese people is integrated into the fine history and culture of the Chinese civilization spanning 5,000 year and has connections with the struggle of the Chinese nation since modern times. Under the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, we will continue to draw from the past and make foreign achievements serve China to promote the modernization of China's governance system and capacity.
Jose Valencia said, the great achievements of the People's Republic of China in the past 70 years are also of great significance to the whole world. The Ecuadorian side is ready to deepen cooperation in jointly building the Belt and Road Initiative and other areas to elevate Ecuador-China relations to new highs.
