The upcoming Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics will promote and embody the Olympic motto "Faster, Higher, Stronger-Together", and encourage people around the world to come together for a shared future, President Xi Jinping said.

Xi made the remarks while replying separately to letters from Victoria Woodards and Dick Muri, mayors of Tacoma and Steilacoom of the state of Washington, the United States, on Monday.

Xi said that Beijing 2022 is a joyous occasion for the Chinese people and is also a grand event for the cause of the international Olympics.

Supported by the Chinese people and the international community, China will undoubtedly present a streamlined, safe and splendid Olympic Games to the world, he added.

In letters they recently wrote to Xi, the two mayors extended their Lunar New Year greetings to the Chinese President and the Chinese people, and wished the Beijing Winter Olympics success.

Woodards said in her letter to Xi that against the backdrop of the pandemic, the whole world is lucky that China is responsible for and capable of hosting a safe, healthy and successful Winter Olympic Games. Residents of Tacoma will watch the Games via media and cheer for the athletes and Beijing, she said.

Muri said in his letter to Xi that residents of Steilacoom trust in and look forward to a well-organized and successful Beijing Winter Olympics.

More than 6,700 residents of Steilacoom, especially he and his family, are eager to watch the athletes' outstanding performances on television, Muri added.

The two mayors also said they hope the Year of the Tiger will witness the enhancement of peace, friendship and solidarity.
