Financial Review: China’s Xi Jinping talks of deeper Australian ties ahead of G20 Letter from Xi Jinping; excerpt:

The magnificent land of Australia has attracted worldwide attention with its exotic, charming landscape, dynamic economy, vibrant people and diversified culture.

I have visited Australia four times since 1988. Each time left me with a new ­understanding of the country and a deep impression of the profound friendship between the Chinese and Australian people. I look forward to my fifth trip to this land during which I will pay a state visit to Australia and attend the ninth G20 summit, in Brisbane.

As a Chinese saying goes: “Even mountains and seas cannot distance people with common aspirations.”
