Afghan President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani said Xi's election fully proved that the Chinese people acknowledge Xi's outstanding achievements and support his wise leadership. Afghanistan cherishes its friendship with China and expects to deepen cooperation with the country in all areas, he added.
Liu Jieyi, director of the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, made the remarks while meeting with a Taiwanese delegation led by Hualien county chief Fu Kun-Chi in Beijing.
Fu expressed his gratitude for the help the mainland provided after a devastating earthquake that hit Hualien in early February. He said the county would continue to uphold the "1992 Consensus" and expand cooperation with the mainland.
The place where we practice kungfu deserves special mentioning. It is a little “island ” in the heart of the city, Xizhimen. A park with a small river where dragon-shaped boats take passengers to the Summer Palace, is an amazing place with Russian spirit. Beijing is known to be home for many Russians, there is the largest Russian district called Yabaolu with many Russian clothing shops and food restaurants. But this place is something different. Tranquil, peaceful, enchanting, the park is hidden from the eyes of many, showing its true beauty only to those who is in pursue of the miracle. On the opposite side of the wushu training spot there is former Soviet Union Exhibition Center, which was renamed into Beijing Exhibition Center after Soviets’ and China Republic’s relations had come into turbulence. The earliest Russian cuisine restaurant “Moscow ” was also placed in this picturesque area. Government officials who took office during that period used to have their lunches and dinners there.
