El Salvador President Arrives in China for First Ever Visit

BEIJING – El Salvador’s President Salvador Sanchez Ceren arrived on Wednesday in Beijing for a seven-day visit – the first ever visit by a leader from the Central American country to China – following recent establishment of diplomatic ties between the two nations.

Sanchez Ceren was received by Vice Foreign Minister Qin Gang at the international airport at Beijing.

The president was accompanied by Foreign Minister Carlos Castaneda, Education Minister Carlos Canjura, and Health Minister Violeta Menjivar, as well as other senior officials.

Sanchez Ceren is expected to meet with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping on Thursday, and with Prime Minister Li Keqiang on Friday, according to a statement by the Salvadoran president’s office.

On Wednesday, he is expected to meet with students from El Salvador at the University of International Business and Economics, and attend the inauguration of the China International Import Expo at Shanghai, where 25 Salvadorian businessmen will be taking part.

The statement added that Xi and Sanchez Ceren were expected to sign important cooperation agreements in different sectors to lay the foundation of their new relationship.

In August, El Salvador broke off diplomatic ties with Taiwan in favor of China, following in the footsteps of the Dominican Republic (May 2018), Panama (June 2017), and Sao Tome and Principe (December 2016).
