To govern such a big country with so many people and so complex national conditions, we, the leaders of China need to discharge our responsibilities with utmost care as if we are walking on thin ice or standing on the edge of an abyss. To quote a Chinese adage, "Governing a big country is as delicate as frying a small fish".
According to Chuang Tzu, "If water is not piled up deep enough, it won't have the strength to bear up a big boat." Let's work together to enable the large boat of China-Mexico friendly cooperation to ride the wind and forge ahead in the vast ocean of China-Mexico friendship.
As a Russian proverb goes, "Big ships sail far." We also have lines of an ancient poem which read, "A time will come to ride the wind and cleave the waves, I'll set my cloudlike sail to cross the sea which raves."
"Boundless is the ocean where we sail with the wind." Like a vast ocean, the Asia Pacific offers enough sailing space for us to make progress together.
Sustainable security means that we need to focus on both development and security so that security would be durable. As a Chinese saying goes, for a tree to grow tall, a strong and solid root is required; for a river to reach far, an unimpeded source is necessary. The tree of peace does not grow on barren land while the fruit of development is not produced amidst flames of war.
There is a French saying: "Little by little, the bird builds its nest." And there is a Chinese saying: "A towering tree grows out of a small seedling; a nine-storeyed terrace begins with heaps of earth."
It is my sincere wish that Mongolia will make great strides forward in its national development just like ten thousand horses galloping ahead with full vitality. I also sincerely hope that China-Mongolia comprehensive strategic partnership will advance at fast speed and achieve resounding success.
Culturally, the two sides should enhance inter-civilizational dialogue and cultural exchanges. As a Chinese saying puts it, one should first of all respect one's own culture, and also appreciate the culture of others for the prosperity of human civilization. This philosophy will guide our two sides to develop an exemplary relationship of different civilizations living in harmony and reinforcing each other.
Achieving harmony is like preparing the thick soup. Only with the right amount of water, fire, vinegar, meat sauce, salt and plum can fish and meat be cooked with the right taste." "It is the same when it comes to music. Only by combining the sounds of different instruments with the right rhythm and pitch as well as tone and style can you produce an excellent melody." "Who will like the soup with nothing but water in it? What ear can tolerate the same tone played repeatedly on one instrument?"
All living things are nourished without injuring one another; all roads run parallel without interfering with one another." The Chinese dream offers an opportunity to France; so does the French dream to China.
