The President’s message reads as follows:‎

Let me also take this opportunity to congratulate Your Excellency on your re-election as the Chairman of the Central Military Commission.”

“The overwhelming support shown by the delegates of the 13th National People’s Congress in electing Your Excellency for a second term, is a testament to the great strides made by China, in all fields of national development, under your able leadership, over the past five years. It is also a vote of confidence in Your Excellency’s vision to take China forward towards realizing the “Two Centenary Goals” and achieving the Chinese Dream. I am confident that under your adroit guidance and foresight, the country will continue to reach new heights of progress and create more opportunities for global partnerships of shared development.

Your Excellency’s re-election for a second term in office comes at a time of exceptional bilateral relations between our two countries. Our 45 year history of bilateral cooperation has been further enriched through a number of win-win development projects, commercial cooperation and people-to-people contact in the past five years. As you begin your new term of office I look forward to working closely with Your Excellency to take our relationship to even higher levels for the common benefit of our two peoples.

Please accept, Excellency, my personal best wishes for your good health and well-being as well as for the continued progress and prosperity of the friendly people of China and the assurances of my highest consideration.”
