ASEAN is the priority in China's neighborhood diplomacy. China highly appreciates Thailand's fruitful efforts to promote regional win-win cooperation as the rotating chairman of ASEAN this year, and will continue to strongly support Thailand in playing an important role in the region.

Ambassador Lyu pointed out that President Xi Jinping's upcoming award of China's highest state honor for foreigners, the Medal of Friendship, to Her Highness Princess Sirindhorn in Beijing is a high appreciation of the Thai Royal family, especially Her Highness, for her long-standing commitment in promoting the development of China-Thailand relations, and a vivid portrayal of the special kith and kin relations between the two countries. As both countries enter a new stage of historical development, we should seize the opportunity and work together to build a closer and friendlier comprehensive strategic partnership of cooperation.
