China is willing to work with El Salvador to forge greater synergy of development strategies, firmly support each other, upgrade practical cooperation, expand people-to-people exchanges and push for sustained and in-depth development of China-El Salvador relations, Sun said.

For his part, Bukele thanked Xi for sending a special envoy to attend his inauguration ceremony and asked Sun to convey his cordial greetings and best wishes to Xi.

Noting that it is of great importance for his country to develop relations with China, Bukele said El Salvador is willing to deepen mutually beneficial cooperation with China and lift bilateral relations to higher levels.
