Chinese cultural items gifted to Maldives

China has today gifted a number of cultural items to the Maldives, following discussions between the countries’ respective first ladies during President Xi Jinpeng’s visit in September.

During a ceremony held at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs this morning, Chinese Ambassador Wang Fukang signed an official certificate marking the handing over of the gifts, which included books, ethnic costumes, musical instruments, and Chinese crafts.

“During the meetings, both our countries’ leaders have made a decision to build a future-oriented, all-round, cooperative friendship,” Sun Online reported Wang as saying during the ceremony.

“We each promote our bilateral relations to new heights. So from our Chinese government we are very satisfied with our bilateral relations.”
