俗语 in Xi Jinping's Speeches

shǐ zhì bù yú
Meaning: vow to adhere to a chosen course

Xi's remarks at the joint press conference of the China-Africa Cooperation Summit stuck to the safe and predictable topics of cooperation and mutual trust, promising to bring Africa and China together in a community of common destiny. He used this idiom to stress China's commitment to working with Africa.

Original: 中非将矢志不渝加强团结合作,在合作共赢、共同发展的道路上结伴 前行。
