The Chinese and the Romanian people enjoy profound friendship, Xi said. They have respected and supported each other and treated each other on an equal footing since the two countries established diplomatic ties 60 years ago.

He said the Chinese people will not forget the sympathy, support and assistance the Romanian people have offered to China in the early years of new China, in China's efforts to restore its legitimate seat in the United Nations, or other issues that bear on China's core interest and major concerns.
