RIYADH, Dec. 26 (Xinhua) — A Chinese culture show was put up in the Saudi capital Riyadh as both countries mark the 20th anniversary of diplomatic ties.
The three-day event, sponsored by the kingdom’s Culture and Information Ministry in tandem with the Chinese Culture Ministry, is being organized at Riyadh’s huge King Fahd Culture Center.
Saudi Culture Minister Abdulaziz Khouja said the show reflected friendly relationship between the two counties, hailing deeply- rooted ties binding his country and China.
A 30-strong Chinese delegation, which included artists and musicians, has arrived in Riyadh to take part in the event.
Chinese Commerce Minister Chen Deming paid a landmark visit to Saudi Arabia in early 2010, during which he said both countries are going to boost the two-way trade volume to 60 billion U.S. dollars by 2015.
