In Dunhuang, the wind is the master here, blowing everything that moves into sand and carving everything that cannot move into paintings.
At the foot of Mingsha Mountain and beside the Dangquan River, the Mogao Grottoes stand quietly.
There are 735 grottoes on the cliff, telling the history of thousands of years.
General Secretary Xi Jinping once said: "Dunhuang, I yearn for it."
"What might be the threat of a natural disaster?"
"Is there more rainfall now than before?"
At the symposium held by the Dunhuang Academy, General Secretary Xi Jinping made detailed inquiries from natural disasters to the number of tourists.
Fan Jinshi, the honorary director of the Dunhuang Academy who participated in the symposium, was deeply touched: "What he cares about is the most urgent problem currently facing Dunhuang."
2023 is the 10th anniversary of the joint construction of the "Belt and Road" initiative.
General Secretary Xi Jinping has repeatedly emphasized the promotion of Dunhuang cultural research services to jointly build the "Belt and Road".
Transcend civilization barriers with exchanges of civilizations, transcend civilization conflicts with mutual learning among civilizations, and transcend superiority of civilizations with coexistence of civilizations.
The Chinese civilization has been famous for its openness and inclusiveness since ancient times, and it has continuously radiated new vitality through exchanges and mutual learning with other civilizations.
Dunhuang culture is a typical representative, demonstrating the cultural confidence of the Chinese nation.
Today, China is open to the world to share more than 6,500 high-definition digital resource archives from cave sites such as Dunhuang Mogao Grottoes and Dunhuang Buddhist scripture cave documents.
Dunhuang, the meeting point of the four major civilizations.
It belongs to China, but also to the world.
When you arrive in Dunhuang, you will feel more empathetic with the "civilization exchanges and mutual learning" proposed by General Secretary Xi Jinping.
