U.S. teachers and students thank Xi for Chinese New Year greetings, look forward to visiting

ISLAMABAD (PEN) : Teachers and students of Lincoln High School from the U.S. state of Washington expressed thanks to Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife Peng Liyuan through China Media Group (CMG) on Monday, saying they are looking forward to the upcoming exchange activities in China.

Xi and Peng recently replied to a Chinese New Year greeting card from the students and teachers at Lincoln High School. In the greeting card sent to the teachers and students, Xi and Peng invited them to come to China for exchange and study and contribute to the friendship between the two peoples, especially among the young people.

Karl Hoseth, principal of Lincoln High School, said that when the teachers and students received the New Year card from Xi and his wife, they were very excited and Lincoln High School is willing to become a bridge and bond between China and the United States.

In November last year, President Xi announced in San Francisco that China is willing to invite 50,000 young people from the United States to study in China in the next five years.

Lincoln High School is one of the first American schools to participate in the program, and the first group of teachers and students will travel to several cities and visit CMG headquarters in China in March.
