China, following the Russia & the U.S.A., was only the 3rd country in the World to conduct a spacewalk from one of their own spacecrafts. French, Japanese, Australian & Swedish had done so before the Chinese — but either from the Russian MIR space station or from U.S. space shuttles.

The Chinese spacewalk came a full 43-years after the very first spacewalk, by Russian Alexey Leonov on March 18, 1965.

The first American spacewalk was that same year, 77-days later.
