An exhibition displaying over 1,000 Chinese books, kicked off Monday, in Kuwait City, the Kuwaiti capital.
At the opening ceremony, the Chinese Embassy in Kuwait presented to the National Library of Kuwait (NLK), more than 1,000 books in English and Arabic.
The books, covering a wide range of subjects, including Chinese history, culture, politics, diplomacy and tourism, are expected to open a window for the Kuwaitis, to fully understand China, said Wang Di, the Chinese ambassador to Kuwait.
“We are committed to building a bridge of friendship, to enhance both peoples’ understanding of each other’s society and culture, and strengthen the people-to-people bond within the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative,” he added.
