    no verb

    I hope that1 during your tenure of office that relation of friendship and cooperation that2 already exist between our efforts to make greater contributions to the promotion of mutual understanding and friendship between the peoples of China and Scotland with best wishes.

    In this sentence, “I” is the subject, and “hope” is the verb, “that1” introduces an object clause. In the object clause, “during you tenure of office” is a prepositional phrase. The subject is “relation of friendship and cooperation”, that2 introduces an attributive clause,already exist between our efforts to make greater contributions to the promotion of mutual understanding and friendship between the peoples of China and Scotland with best wishes, but which word is the verb? Is it wrong?

    Ill-constructed sentence.
