On September 14, 2020, President Xi Jinping and Hereditary Prince Alois of Liechtenstein exchanged congratulatory messages on the 70th anniversary of the establishment of China-Liechtenstein diplomatic relations.
In his congratulatory message, Xi Jinping noted, although China and Liechtenstein are far apart and have different histories and cultures, levels of development and national sizes, the distance and differences have not impeded friendly exchanges and cooperation between us. Since the establishment of diplomatic relations 70 years ago, China-Liechtenstein friendship has improved over time. Cooperation in various fields has maintained a good momentum. The practice of China-Liechtenstein relations has well illustrated the important concept of international relations that all countries, big or small, are equal. I attach great importance to the development of China-Liechtenstein relations, and I am willing to work with Hereditary Prince Alois to take the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the two countries' diplomatic relations as a new starting point to jointly push China-Liechtenstein relations for new and continuous progress for the benefit of the two countries and peoples. May China-Liechtenstein friendship be passed from generation to generation.
In his congratulatory message, Alois expressed, Liechtenstein-China relations have been developing continuously in the past 70 years, and the two sides have carried out good cooperation and supported each other in various fields. The profound development of Liechtenstein-China relations has demonstrated the friendship between the two countries, which is especially valuable against the current backdrop full of challenges.
