(ECNS) -- China will continue to pursue collective cooperation with Arab states, build a more all-dimensional cooperation platform and open a new chapter and embark on a new journey of the China-Arab States Cooperation Forum, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Mao Ning said at a regular press conference on Wednesday.

China and the Arab states enjoy a traditional friendship and are strategic partners who trust each other, Mao said.

At the first China-Arab States Summit in 2022, the two sides agreed to build a China-Arab community with a shared future in the new era, ushering in a new era of fully thriving and ever-deepening ties between China and the Arab world, she said.

With joint effort of both sides, positive progress has been made in building a China-Arab community with a shared future, and the two sides have further deepened strategic mutual trust, Mao said, adding that China established either a comprehensive strategic partnership or a strategic partnership with 14 Arab states and the Arab League. China facilitated the historic reconciliation between Saudi Arabia and Iran, supported the return of Syria to the Arab League and rendered support to Arab states in strengthening strategic independence and seeking strength through unity. Practical cooperation between China and Arab states is also deepening.

“We signed Belt and Road cooperation documents with all 22 Arab states and the Arab League. Seventeen Arab states became members of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, and over 200 cooperation projects were implemented by China and Arab states under the framework of Belt and Road cooperation. China has been the biggest trading partner of Arab states for years running,” she said.

The growth of China-Arab relations brings benefits to people of both sides and is conducive to peace and development in the Middle East and increasing stability in this turbulent world, the spokesperson said.
