    Diplomacy of the Head of State丨These state gifts have rich meanings and are very particular!

    Published on

    Nur-Sultan, September 16th. National gifts are not only messengers of people’s friendship, but also witnesses of friendly relations between countries. During this visit to Kazakhstan, President Xi Jinping brought several state gifts to President Tokayev, each of which has rich meanings and is very particular.

    The first is the cloisonne inside painting named “China-Kazakhstan Friendship”. This gift is in the shape of the traditional Chinese ritual vessel “Zun”, which combines Chinese intangible cultural heritage cloisonne craftsmanship and interior painting craftsmanship. The interior paintings are four carefully selected patterns: the ancient Silk Road, the China-Kazakhstan oil and gas pipeline project, the China-Kazakhstan Horgos International Border Cooperation Center, and the China-Europe train passing through Kazakhstan.

    President Xi Jinping once said: “Kazakhstan is the place where the ancient Silk Road passed. It has made important efforts to communicate between Eastern and Western civilizations and to promote exchanges and cooperation between different ethnic groups and cultures. Contribution.” In 2013, it was in Kazakhstan that President Xi Jinping first proposed the joint construction of the “Silk Road Economic Belt” initiative. This cloisonne interior painting respects the integration of ancient and modern, which not only shows the long history of China-Kazakhstan exchanges, but also shows the fruitful results of China-Kazakhstan’s joint construction of the “Belt and Road”, and also entrusts the good wishes for the steady and long-term development of China-Kazakhstan permanent comprehensive strategic partnership. .

    Second, Hunan embroidery is single-sided embroidery of “The Great Wall”. Hunan embroidery is one of the four famous embroidery in China, and the Great Wall is one of the symbols of Chinese culture, symbolizing will and courage, unity and strength. This Hunan embroidery, borrowing the meaning of the Great Wall, wishes the Kazakh people to unite as one to build the “New Kazakhstan” and achieve success.

    The third is a set of stationery supplies. The brushes are meticulously crafted, the emblem ink is black in color, the inkstone is firm and delicate, and the copper stationery supplies are warm and thick. To clarify the “doorway” of this national ceremony, we must first introduce another “identity” of President Tokayev: “a learned sinologist”.

    In the 1980s and 1990s, Tokayev studied in Beijing and later served as a diplomat in China. According to Kazakh diplomat Borat Nulgaliyev, President Tokayev is familiar with China‘s history, culture and real national conditions, which will help him conduct a “highly trusted and rich dialogue” with President Xi Jinping. In a broader sense, it also contributes to “deepening and expanding mutually beneficial cooperation between Kazakhstan and China“.

    Of course, President Xi Jinping presented President Tokayev with stationery supplies not only because he is familiar with Chinese culture, but also to express the Chinese people’s best wishes for the Kazakh people to write a new chapter in the country’s development.

    There are both ink rhyme and scholarly fragrance. The Chinese hardcover versions of volumes 3 and 4 of “Xi Jinping: The Governance of the Country” are the fourth national gift presented by President Xi Jinping to President Tokayev.

    The Chinese-style modernization road provides a new choice for those countries and nations in the world who want to speed up development and maintain their independence. The exchange of experience in state governance and administration has always been an important aspect of China-Kazakhstan cooperation .

    All sectors of the Kazakh society are very concerned about China‘s development achievements and development experience. In June 2021, on the eve of the centennial birthday of the Communist Party of China, President Tokayev said during a telephone conversation with President Xi Jinping: “Under the strong leadership of President Xi Jinping, China has made historic achievements in development, and the Chinese people are marching forward with firm steps to achieve this. On the ‘two centenary goals’ and the journey of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.” He also said: “The series of major initiatives proposed by China have been appreciated and supported by the international community.” “Xi Jinping: The Governance of the Country” reflects the development context and main contents of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, and opens a “window of thought” for all sectors of the Kazakh society to understand the Chinese road, Chinese governance, and Chinese principles.

    China has great etiquette, so it is called Xia; it has the beauty of clothing and regulations, it is called Hua.” A national ceremony carries the long-standing etiquette culture of the Chinese nation, showing the Chinese people in the new era. and honest demeanor. They are the epitome of friendship and cooperation between China and other countries in the world, and they are also witnesses to the grand journey of major-country diplomacy with Chinese characteristics.
