Your Excellency Mr. President,

It is delighted to know that you have assumed as the President of the Republic of South Africa. On behalf of the government and the people of China, and on my own behalf, I wish to convey warm congratulations and the best wishes for your success in fulfilling this lofty mission.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of China-South Africa diplomatic relations. Being an old friend of the Chinese people, you have made important contribution to China-South Africa relations. I attach great importance to the development of China-South Africa relations. I am willing to join efforts with you to avail the opportunity of the 20th anniversary of China-South Africa diplomatic ties, to support each other in the hosting of a successful 2018 Beijing Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) and a successful BRICS Johannesburg Summit, and to continue to promote China-South Africa comprehensive strategic partnership to new height, so as to better benefit our two countries and two peoples.
