Vice-Premier Liu Yandong visited Faisal Al-Husseine Basic School for Girls in the West Bank city of Ramallah on Thursday of local time.

When she arrived, the students said hello to her in Chinese. Liu observed a lesson about China in a ninth-grade classroom.

"This is the first time for me to enter a campus in Palestine, and I'm very delighted to see the clean campus and the students who are full of vigor and vitality," Liu said.

The Vice-premier said the Palestinian children, like children around the world and those in China, "deserve school desks surrounded by tranquility and they should receive a good education".

"In the upcoming three years, China will enable more Palestinian students to study in China, and China is ready to offer help for unfolding Chinese language teaching in Palestine," Liu said.

"I believe that there will be successors and messengers among you to hand down the friendship between China and Palestine from generation to generation," Liu added.

School Principal Samar Samara said she hoped that Liu's visit will boost bilateral efforts to build friendly ties between schools in both countries.

"Joint efforts are expected to boost the digitalization of teaching and studying in Palestine," Samar said.

Liu was on the final stop of a trip to Egypt, Israel and Palestine from March 25 to March 31.
