On February 16, 2017, Embassy of China in Bangkok hosted a Russian-Chinese get-together.
Friendship between the two countries and the two embassies as usual was the key theme of the evening. The accent of such parties is amateur performance. Staff-members of both embassies performed Russian and Chinese pop songs while Ambassadors H.E. Mr. Kirill Barsky and H.E. Mr. Ning Fukui sang karaoke in Chinese. Their duet with the famous «Moscow Nights» became the hit of the program.
On the occasion of the lunar New Year of the Red Rooster H.E. Mr. Kirill Barsky and H.E. Mrs. Chu Qingling, spouse of the Ambassador of China, exchanged presents - their own drawings of a rooster. An exhibition of graphical artworks of Mr. Barsky with 3D images of Chinese characters was displayed on the sidelines of the reception.
And of course the Chinese diplomats treated their Russian colleagues with dishes of traditional Chinese cuisine. It was fantastic!
Friendship get-togethers is a good long-standing tradition of socializing between Russian and Chinese diplomats not only in Moscow and Beijing, but also in capitals of other countries including Bangkok.
