BEIJING -- Chinese President Xi Jinping's state visit to Britain has opened a "golden era" of bilateral relations and a new chapter of China-West exchanges, said Foreign Minister Wang Yi.
Speaking to reporters before the trip concluded on Saturday, Wang added that the fruitful results of the landmark trip once again demonstrated the bright prospects of Xi's idea of building a new model of international relations with win-win cooperation at its core.
GOLDEN TIME HERALDED BY XI'S VISIT
The Chinese president's first state visit to Britain has promoted the all-around development of bilateral ties, ushered in the "golden time" for China-Britain strategic partnership, injected fresh impetus for cooperation between the Asian giant and Europe, and created a new chapter for the communication between the Chinese civilization with the West, Wang said.
Noting that both countries have made important contributions to the civilization of all mankind, Wang said that promoting the bilateral ties is now the consensus of both governments and both peoples.
After Xi and the British Prime Minister David Cameron held several rounds of talks, China and Britain already embarked on a new journey -- "a golden era in their relations featuring enduring, inclusive and win-win cooperation," the Chinese minister said.
