A photo exhibition of city walls of the Chinese ancient capital Nanjing and the thousand-year-old Israeli city of Akko kicked off on Monday in the old city of Akko, northern Israel.

The exhibition, jointly organized by the China Cultural Center in Tel Aviv, the Municipality of Akko, and other bodies from both countries, demonstrates about 40 photos of Nanjing, the capital of six dynasties in ancient China, and Akko, one of the first historical sites in Israel selected as world cultural heritages.

Chinese Ambassador to Israel Cai Run noted in his opening address that the city walls have become bridges that link people in different countries, and bonds that strengthen friendship and communication.

As a part of the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Israel, the exhibition enables the audience to know better the past and present of the two ancient cities, and serves as a window for more Chinese and Israeli friends to deepen their understanding of the ancient culture and history of the two countries, said Cai.

Recalling his visit to Nanjing seven years ago, Akko Mayor Shimon Lankri said the eastern China city has left him with a deep impression. He also expressed his hope that the exhibition could promote cooperation between Akko and more Chinese cities in various fields.

Tao Chen, director of the China Cultural Center in Tel Aviv, told Xinhua that as a platform and bridge of cultural exchange between China and Israel, the center hopes to create an opportunity for local citizens to learn more about the common part between the two civilizations by hosting the exhibition.
