On February 21, 2014, H.E. Sun Lijie, the newly-appointed Chinese Ambassador to Uzbekistan, presented the copy of his credentials to Uzbek Foreign Minister Abdulaziz Kamilov at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Uzbekistan.

Ambassador Sun first conveyed warm greetings from Foreign Minister Wang Yi, and said that it is a great honor for him to come back to work in Uzbekistan again after ten years, and to renew the traditional friendship with industrious and kind Uzbek people. Since the independence more than 20 years ago, Uzbekistan has enjoyed political stability, blooming development of economy and the remarkable improvement of people's living standards, which fully prove that Uzbekistan has chosen a development path conforming to its own national conditions under the excellent leadership of President Islam Abduganiyevich Karimov. China is sincerely delighted with and proud of the great achievements Uzbekistan has attained. Developing China-Uzbekistan relations is not only a set policy of the Chinese government, but also an important component of China's foreign policy of "creating an amicable, prosperous and friendly neighbourhood" with neighbouring countries. China is willing to work with Uzbek colleagues to jointly promote the bilateral strategic partnership to new levels continuously.

Foreign Minister Kamilov extended warm welcome for Ambassador Sun's assumption of new post on behalf of the Uzbek government and people, and stressed that the warm and hospitable Uzbek people are very happy that the old friend could come back to work in Uzbekistan again. He believed that Ambassador Sun, who has rich experience in diplomacy, profound knowledge of Central Asian history and great enthusiasm for deepening Uzbekistan-China friendship, will surely bring bilateral relations to move forward continuously. Kamilov happily recalled the scenes of President Xi Jinping, Premier Li Keqiang, Foreign Minister Wang Yi and others' visits to Uzbekistan last year, and stressed that the current China-Uzbekistan relations are in the best period in history, and that both countries enjoy highly mutual trust in politics, remarkable achievements in practical cooperation, increasing people-to-people and cultural exchanges, with huge potential for developing Uzbekistan-China relations. Uzbekistan attaches great importance to developing relations with China, taking it as the priority for its diplomacy, and is willing to comprehensively strengthen bilateral cooperation in various fields such as politics, security, economy and trade, and people-to-people and culture. He believed that Uzbekistan-China relations are of broad development prospects and bright future.

The meeting was conducted in a solemn and friendly atmosphere. Both sides also had in-depth exchanges of views on some specific issues existing in bilateral relations.
