Seychelles President Michel praises long ties with China

In a letter sent to President Hu Jintao, President Michel also took the opportunity to celebrate the long-standing friendship between the two states and thanked the Chinese government for the continual support given to Seychelles and its development ambitions:

“I note with much satisfaction that the excellent ties of friendship and cooperation between our two countries are deeply rooted, established long before formal diplomatic relations, dating back to almost 150 years.

“Furthermore, the government and people of Seychelles join me in extending to your government and people, our heartfelt appreciation for the recent assistance towards the new Anse Royale Hospital and the Palais de La Justice, which your government has generously donated to our people.”

The President concluded with well wishes for the continual prosperity of the Chinese people and the strengthening of bond between the two nations.
