With the 2019 Spring Festival around the corner, China Daily sat down with ambassadors and diplomats to talk about their understanding of Spring Festival, outlook on bilateral relations, and their New Year greetings to the Chinese people.
In the video interview, Masood Khalid, Pakistani ambassador to China, vividly relates the folktale depicting the origin of Chinese Spring Festival. He believes that Spring Festival doesn't only have a great impact on Chinese culture and society; its influence has extended to the cultures of neighboring countries where Lunar Chinese New Year is also celebrated.
The ambassador regards Chinese culture as a good reflection of the country's long and rich history. "It is a civilization which has made an imprint on global culture", the ambassador said.
