Xi and Trong talked about the tea culture that the two countries share. Xi also shared the connotation of the Chinese character (茶) of tea, which is formed with Chinese character people (人)between grass (艹) and trees (木). Just as people may bump into each other, nations may also have frictions with one another. As long as people can shelve differences, promote harmony and adhere to the principle of harmony in diversity, people can maximize their common interests.
