KUWAIT CITY, Nov. 27 (Xinhua) — Two warships from China on Sunday docked at Kuwait’s Shuwaikh port to start a five-day official visit to the Gulf Arab emirate.

The tour by the destroyer “Wuhan” and the frigate “Yulin” marked the first visit by Chinese naval vessels to Kuwait since the two countries established diplomatic ties 40 years ago.

“This visit marks a historic occasion and Kuwaiti navy looks forward to future cooperation to improve the relationship and friendship between our two navies,” said Colonel Khaled Ahmad Abdallah from Kuwait’s navy.

The flotilla was part of the ninth Chinese naval convoy to conclude its escort mission in the Gulf of Aden and waters off Somalia.

Commander of the flotilla Guan Jianguo hopes the visit would enhance mutual cooperation between the two navies, which in turn would contribute to boosting bilateral relations.

The flotilla would visit Oman after its stay in Kuwait.

BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, Nov. 20 (Xinhua) — Visiting Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and Bruneian Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah said Sunday the two countries’ cooperation is fruitful and conducive to regional stability and prosperity.

Addressing a welcoming banquet hosted by Hassanal Bolkiah, Wen expressed his heart-felt congratulations on the achievements made by the Bruneian people in their nation’s development.

China and Brunei share a long history of friendship, said Wen. Ever since the establishment of bilateral relations in 1991, the two countries have expanded cooperation in various fields, bringing tangible benefits to the two peoples and pushing forward regional stability and prosperity, he added.

The Chinese premier called for joint efforts from both sides to carry on their traditional friendship, strengthen cooperation and strive for a better future for China-Brunei relations.

For his part, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah said exchanges between Brunei and China can be dated back to over 1,000 years ago.

In the past two decades, peoples of the two countries have further enhanced their mutual understanding and made fruitful achievements in bilateral cooperation, he noted.

Hassanal Bolkiah said Brunei would like to join hands with China to develop and expand their traditional friendship, learn from each other, deepen cooperation and seek common development.

Chinese Mandarin – China to construct museum highlighting history of overseas Chinese – Chinese News

Friday, August 19th, 2011

BEIJING, Aug. 20 (Xinhua) — Construction of a planned museum that will highlight the history of overseas Chinese will kick off in downtown Beijing in September, according to the All-China Federation of Returned Overseas Chinese.

The building will be constructed near Dongzhimen in Dongcheng District with a projected cost of 220 million yuan (about 34.36 million U.S. dollars), which will be mainly-funded by the government, said Qiao Wei, vice chairman of the federation, at a press conference Friday.

Qiao said the news of the inception of the museum’s construction, for which the proposal was first raised by Chen Jiageng, a famous overseas Chinese leader, in 1960, has been met with active responses from overseas Chinese.

Nearly 5,000 people have volunteered to donate to the project so far, and among the donations are more than 10,000 antique items for the museum, Qiao said.

The museum will serve not only as a new base for patriotic education, but also a window for overseas Chinese to express their feelings and cultural identity towards the motherland, Qiao said.

Currently there are around 10 museums, exhibition halls and memorial halls on overseas Chinese across China.
