It’s not strange that Chinese President Xi Jinping’s first visit since his re-election will be to the United Arab Emirates. This visit is normal given the relationship between the two countries. The extent of mutual trust between the two countries’ leaderships makes this visit extremely important as it solidifies and founds the basis for a new phase of strategic relations between special political and economic partners, or rather friends, on the cultural and humanitarian levels.
It’s true that the difference in the geographic size of both countries is huge but it’s also true that the magnitude of political, economic and humanitarian agreement between them is also of great significance and makes joint work possible and rather very successful. The UAE and China are distinguished for their conciliatory and consensual policy with everyone.
In this historical visit, we’re certainly making a new and huge step into the future in our relations with China. This relation is not only based on economic interests and political understandings as there’s also a strong foundation of mutual respectMohammed Al-Hammadi
