PHOTO XINHUA BEIJING Chinese President Xi Jinping recently replied to a letter from teachers and students at the China Corner of St. Margaret College Secondary School in Malta, encouraging more Maltese youth to participate in people-to-people and cultural exchanges between the two countries.

Xi said that the China Corner of the school has positively contributed to promoting the China-Malta friendship and increased knowledge about China among the Maltese youth.

Xi wished the China Corner continued to have greater success in the future, and welcomed faculty members and students to China for exchanges and study.

Peace and harmony amongst all states has been a long-held great aspiration of the Chinese nation for the human society, Xi said, adding that it is also the cultural root of the vision of building a community with a shared future for mankind.

We live in a world where opportunities and challenges coexist, and where humanity as a whole rise or fall together. He noted that countries must assist each other in times of need and choose win-win cooperation if they want to share in the fruits of development.

Xi said for the purpose of tackling global development and international security challenges, China has introduced the Belt and Road Initiative, the Global Development Initiative, and the Global Security Initiative.

It's a concrete step taken by China to galvanize consensus and strength to put in place a vision of a community with a shared future for mankind, according to Xi.
