|New Year Message by Foreign Minister Li Zhaoxing|
I would like to express, on behalf of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China, our gratitude to all friends at home and abroad who care for China's diplomatic endeavors.
In 2003, we actively cultivated friendly relations and cooperation with the other countries, worked hard for peace and prosperity of the world, and served China's own domestic economic and social development.
In the new year,China's diplomacy will continue to dedicate to maintaining world peace and promoting common development and serve the country's reform, opening-up and modernization drive. I look forward to greater attention and support to China's diplomacy from our friends.
Happy New Year!
