|Wang Yi Invites 100 Diplomatic Envoys of Foreign Countries to China to Exhibition on the History of the Communist Party of China Themed "Staying True to the Founding Mission"|
On the morning of June 24, 2021, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi invited diplomatic envoys of foreign countries and representatives of international organizations to China to the Exhibition on the History of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Themed "Staying True to the Founding Mission".
Wang Yi said, understanding China should start with an understanding of the CPC, and what comes first in studying the Chinese history is to study the history of the CPC because without the CPC, there would be no the People's Republic of China, and without the leadership of the CPC, there would be no great success in building socialism with Chinese characteristics. No other political party in the world would always take seeking happiness to its people and rejuvenation for its nation as its mission and stay true to this founding mission for 100 years like the CPC; no other political party in the world would always devote itself to exploring a path of revolution and development suited to its national conditions and sacrifice lives, one stepping into the breach as another fell, for 100 years like the CPC; no other political party in the world would always have a close bond and share weal and woe with its people for 100 years like the CPC; and no other political party in the world would always attach importance to party building, have the courage for self-revolution and be a pacesetter that maintains vitality for 100 years like the CPC.
Wang Yi said, as General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out, one who wants to stride ahead should not forget the path that was trodden. The exhibition introduces the extraordinary journey traveled by the CPC in the past 100 years, and shows the historical, theoretical and social logic of China's centenary development. I believe after the visit, you will know more directly and deeply why the Chinese history and the Chinese people have chosen the CPC, the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and the independent foreign policy of peace.
Wang Yi stressed, the CPC is also a party that fights for the progress of humanity. At a new historical starting point, we will, together with the rest of the world, make unremitting efforts for the building of a community with a shared future for mankind.
More than 100 diplomatic envoys of foreign countries and representatives of international organizations to China visited the exhibition. They listened attentively to the commentaries, stopped frequently to look at carefully and also kept nodding at the precious cultural relics, vivid pictures and artifacts recreating the century-long glorious history of the CPC. The envoys offered their warm congratulations on the 100th anniversary of the founding of the CPC, hailed the extraordinary achievements of the CPC, and expressed their sincere wishes to strengthen exchanges and cooperation with the CPC and further develop relations with China. The envoys said, the governing philosophy and experience of the CPC in administrating the country are worth learning from. They believe that under the strong leadership of the CPC, China will successfully realize its second centenary goal and make new and greater contributions to world peace and development, as well as the progress of humanity.
Foreign military attachés and commercial counselors to China were also on the tour.
