Wu said the two countries have seen their ties develop in a rapid and all-round way since the establishment of diplomatic relations.
The two nations have carried out frequent high-level exchanges, with their mutual political trust gradually building up, Wu said.
Wu added that the two countries have also shared understanding and support on issues concerning each other's core interests and maintained close coordination and cooperation on significant international affairs.
Noting that economic and trade cooperation continues to expand and that people-to-people exchanges are also gaining momentum, Wu stressed that all those efforts have brought visible and practical benefits to the two countries and their people.
