Based on his own diplomatic experience, Ambassador Yu said that the world is beautiful because of diversity. When people have the opportunity to be exposed to multiculture, they can step outside their own limitations and increase their understanding of others, thus achieving cooperation and peace and avoiding conflict and war.

Ambassador Yu mentioned that on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Malta last year, the teacher and students of the “China Corner” wrote a letter to President Xi Jinping, and President Xi Jinping warmly replied, which has become a new much-told story of friendship between the two countries.

Mr Azzopardi said that President Xi Jinping's reply letter has been inspiring him and the students. They will see this as a driving force to continue to run the "China Corner" better and make a positive contribution to the friendship between Malta and China. .

The student representatives of the "China Corner" said in their speeches that they were encouraged by President Xi Jinping's kind reply. China has a long and rich history of science, technology and culture, and has made significant contributions to human progress in related fields. In the past ten years, China's science and technology has developed rapidly, and it has achieved a leading position in many fields. In the continuous learning and research of Chinese culture, the students fully appreciated its profoundness, which aroused everyone's strong interest.
