Meeting with the Ambassador of the People's Republic of China
President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić met earlier today with the Ambassador of the People's Republic of China Chen Bo, who delivered him a letter from President Xi Jinping. The letter reads as follows:
"Dear Mr President,
Thank you for the letter in which you expressed your strong support to the Chinese side for the preservation of sovereignty and national security, which I highly appreciate. China and Serbia remain consistent in their mutual understanding and shared support on issues of vital interest and serious concerns. Strong mutual political trust has laid a solid foundation for a comprehensive strategic partnership between China and Serbia. We recently talked on the phone about cooperation in the fight against COVID-19. Our two countries support each other and fight the epidemic together, where we once again confirmed our brotherhood and friendship.
China and Serbia advocate an independent and autonomous policy, as well as resolute preservation of sovereignty and national security, and oppose outside interference. I pay great attention to the development of Sino-Serbian relations, and I am ready to work with you to continuously deepen the friendly bilateral ties and cooperation in various fields, as well as to preserve international law and justice to contribute to building the common destiny of humanity actively", reads the letter of President Xi.
President Vučić iterated his gratitude for the support Serbia obtained from China and President Xi, particularly for the help during the coronavirus epidemic. Ambassador Chen said that personal contact between President Vučić and President Xi, including their recent telephone conversation, stimulated the ties between the two countries, and encouraged Chinese businessmen to strengthen cooperation with the Serbian counterparts. The two interlocutors expressed hope that a direct flight could be introduced between Belgrade and one of the major cities in China.
President Vučić and Ambassador Chen also noted the sound progress of specific joint projects.
