Premier Wen Jiabao has returned to Beijing, following his five-day official visit to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar. Prior to his departure, Premier Wen attended a press conference in Doha. There he said his visit has significantly enhanced mutual political trust between China and Gulf countries.

Premier Wen also called for keeping the region nuclear free, without exception. He stressed China’s responsibility, as a major international player, to support Arab countries in settling regional unrest peacefully through political means. Speaking on the purpose of his visit, the premier refuted speculations that it is to secure oil, calling it a "narrow-minded" assumption.

Wen’s stop in Saudi Arabia is the first visit by a Chinese premier in 20 years, while his visit to the UAE and Qatar marks the first ever by a Chinese premier. During the tour, Wen took part in more than 40 bilateral and multilateral events, and delivered key speeches at the Fifth World Future Energy Summit opening in Abu Dhabi. He said China will remain committed to a sustainable path of development.
