China is willing to take the 40th anniversary of the establishment of bilateral diplomatic relations as an opportunity and ride on the wings of the joint construction of the “Belt and Road” to deepen bilateral practical cooperation in various fields and open up a new situation for China-Jordan strategic partnership.
