Xi Jinping pointed out that China supports the peace demands of the people in the Middle East, supports the reform and transformation efforts of regional countries, and appreciates Saudi Arabia’s active efforts to maintain regional peace, stability and development.

We are willing to work with Saudi Arabia to explore the Middle East governance path of “promoting peace through development” and strengthen regional development cooperation through the joint construction of the “Belt and Road” to build a regional foundation for peace and stability.

The two sides should jointly encourage and support the parties to resolve hot issues through political channels through dialogue and consultation. The two sides should promote counter-terrorism cooperation in the Middle East, strengthen international cooperation, and prevent the spread of extreme ideas.

At present, the relations between the two countries are very friendly and economic and trade cooperation is developing rapidly. There is no difference between the two sides.
