2009/06/22

 

Under-Secretary-General Sha Zukang,
Chairman Long Yuxiang,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

Good evening!

First of all, I would like to extend, on behalf of the Chinese Mission to the UN, our warm congratulations on the opening of the Ink and Wash International Arts Exhibition. I also wish to extend our warm welcome to the Chinese artists delegation led by Mr. Long Yuxiang, Chairman of China International Cultural Communication Center.

Chinese calligraphy and painting is not only the cream of traditional Chinese culture and arts, but also a unique component of the Chinese civilization. On display today are the works of some famous Chinese painters and calligraphers. Their fine works are of a high artistic caliber, which vividly depict the beautiful landscapes, and the ethnic and social traditions and customs in China. These works will help people in the United Nations to have a better understanding of China, and will also open a window of friendship for the cultural exchanges between the people in China and the rest of the world. 

I sincerely wish the exhibition a complete success. Thank you!
