Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s remarks at a ceremony to award PRC Permanent Representative to the United Nations Liu Jieyi the Foreign Ministry’s badge For Cooperation, New York, September 18, 2017
It gives me great pleasure to award Ambassador Liu Jieyi the Russian Foreign Ministry’s badge For Cooperation. Mr Ambassador, this decision has been approved following many years of your work with Russian Permanent Representatives. We note (and have repeatedly stated as much) that the Russian-Chinese coordination at the UN helps to ensure a balanced development of many international issues.
I am pleased to present you with this badge.
