China, France celebrate 50 years of unique ties
It was cultural interaction, which began long before world history entered the contemporary era, that laid the foundation of China-France friendship. The friendship was boosted by France's soft power and independent foreign policy, which prompted Paris to establish diplomatic ties with Beijing in 1964 during the Cold War, when the United States and its Western allies viewed China as an enemy. France's bold gesture was welcomed and reciprocated by China.
“Experience China” will be held in France and Belgium from Mar. 26 to Apr. 1, which includes donating books to the headquarters of UNESCO, publication of French edition of The Whole Story of the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations between China and France, building ‘China Pavilion’ with the College of Europe. From Mar. 26 to Apr. 6.
