Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the People's Republic of China
Q: On December 31 local time, the Chinese Embassy in Nicaragua held a reopening ceremony. Do you have more on the relevant situation?
A: On December 31 local time, the Chinese Embassy in Nicaragua held a solemn reopening ceremony. All Chinese diplomats posted in Nicaragua, Nicaraguan government officials,â€‚local eminent figures from various sectors, representatives of local Chinese institutions and communities, and representatives of foreign missions in Nicaraguaâ€‚attended the ceremony.
After the resumption of diplomatic relations between China and Nicaragua, the two sides agreed to establish embassies in each other's country as early as possible. Thanks to the concerted efforts of the two sides, within less than one month after the resumption of the diplomatic ties, the five-starred red flag of China is once again raised in Nicaragua after 31 years. This again shows that upholding the one-China principle is an overriding trend that represents international justice and enjoys popular support. The resumption of diplomatic ties between China and Nicaragua serves the fundamental and long-term interests of both sides and is welcomed and supported by the two peoples.
China is ready to work with Nicaragua to enhance friendly exchanges, promote practical cooperation in various sectors, open up new prospectsâ€‚in the bilateral relations, and let our friendship take root, blossom and bear fruitâ€‚to benefit the two countries and two peoples.
