Chinese Prime Minister Li Qiang on Friday “sincerely” congratulated his Georgian counterpart Irakli Kobakhidze on his confirmation as Georgia’s new PM, expressing readiness to work with the new Head of the Government for “further development” of bilateral ties “through joint efforts”, Azernews reports, citing Agenda.

In an official letter sent to Kobakhidze, Qiang noted that the China-Georgia strategic partnership was “gaining a healthy momentum”, highlighting the strengthening of “political trust” between the two states.

The One Belt One Road [Chinese global infrastructure development strategy to invest in more than 150 countries] cooperation is making steady progress [with Georgia] and coordination in international relations is becoming closer”, the Chinese PM stressed.

He wished Georgia “prosperity and happiness, and health to the Georgian people”.
