The China-Arab States seminar on military higher learning institutions was held via video link at the National Defense University (NDU) of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) on Wednesday evening. The theme of the seminar is "Strengthening higher military education cooperation and promoting the construction of a China-Arab community with a shared future". Leaders of military higher learning institutions from 16 Arab countries attended the event.
At the seminar, the Chinese side said that the initiative to build a China-Arab community with a shared future proposed by Chinese President Xi Jinping has pointed out the direction for the development of China-Arab relations in the new era. Facing the current complex and sensitive international landscape, China and Arab countries should join hands to implement the Global Security Initiative and make positive contributions to maintaining world peace and stability. Higher military education is an important part of China-Arab military cooperation.
