At Chinese Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang’s regular press conference on Jan. 14th, 2020, he commented Venezuelan Foreign Minister’s visit to China.
Q: Tomorrow Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza will start his visit to China. Could you provide any details of his visit? Are there any plans to meet with representatives of Chinese energy companies?
A: At the invitation of State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi, Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza will pay an official visit to China from January 15 to 19. It is a major event in China-Venezuela exchange in 2020. There will be a courtesy call with Vice President Wang Qishan and talks with State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi. The two sides will exchange views on how to resolve the Venezuela issue as well as advancing the two sides’ comprehensive strategic partnership and other issues of common interest.
We believe this visit will help find a political solution to the Venezuela issue at an early date, deepen political mutual trust and practical cooperation between China and Venezuela, and maintain stability and development in Latin America and the Caribbean.
