He hoped that they would continue their support to China’s development and progress and make unremitting efforts for the rejuvenation of China. Mr. Cong said that the Chinese Embassy would continue to protect the legitimate rights and interests of the compatriots, provide sound services and facilitate the contacts between the compatriots and the motherland.
