（中外新闻社 中外新闻网记者 张珈闻北京报道）2021年2月27日，联合国国际合作协调局副局长兼新闻部部长、中外新闻社总裁韦燕代表中外新闻社大使俱乐部全体成员在北京向斯洛伐克共和国驻华大使杜尚•贝拉阁下（H.E.Mr.Dusan Bella）颁发“中外新闻社大使俱乐部荣誉主席”证书。至此，中外新闻社大使俱乐部又增添了新的外交力量。
On February 27, 2021, on the behalf of all members of Home and Abroad News Press Ambassador’s Club, the Deputy Director of the United Nations International Cooperation and Collaboration Agency and President of Home and Abroad News Press, Mrs. Wei Yan, presented the “Honorary President” certificate to the Ambassador of the Slovak Republic to China H.E. Mr. Dushan Bella. This award signals a strong addition to the diplomatic influence of Home and Abroad News Press Ambassador’s Club.
Ambassador Dusan Bella said that I am very pleased to accept this certificate. I think that Home and Abroad News Press has developed into a mainstream media with international influence. I am confident to work with Madam Wei Yan, President of Home and Abroad News Press as well as the ambassadors of various countries in China. The Ambassador’s Club will perform great functions with the guidance of various embassies to make full use of the resources of all countries and realize cooperation and sharing among them.
Mrs.Wei Yan expressed her gratitude to Ambassador Dushan Bella for his trust and support. "When it is difficult to carry out official diplomatic exchanges, it is always a good way to utilize civil exchanges to open channels for official diplomacy." Home and Abroad News Press Ambassador’s Club will take the important task of “Civil Diplomacy”. China has established formal diplomatic relations with 180 countries, and 171 of them have embassies in China as well as 34 international organizations. This is a large and highly accreditable group covering all corners of the world. We are confident to overcome various challenges and work closely with other countries to make further contributions to building a community with a shared future for mankind.
As the saying goes, everything in the world gathers together with affinity. Since 2011, 108 ambassadors to China have become "Home and Abroad News Press - News Persons of the Year". On September 5th, 2020, Home and Abroad News Press Ambassador’s Club was officially founded. The ambassadors of eight attended the grand opening ceremony and cut the ribbon at the Redstone Museum in Beijing. This club will strengthen mutual trust and good-neighborly friendship between countries. It also serves as a diverse and open friendship platform.
Over the past 20 years, Home and Abroad News Press has always set the footprints at the frontline of the world's media with the “China Dream” and positive energy from its unique “News Diplomacy”. As an international mainstream media, it has established extensive exchanges and cooperation with government agencies, news media, and cultural enterprises in 89 countries around the world, and used favorable cooperation platforms to receive respect and values through promoting a real China to the world.
