Foreign Minister Wang Yi met his Greek counterpart Nikos Kotzias in Beijing on March 25, pledging to advance pragmatic cooperation.
Wang said the two countries trust and support each other, which is the foundation of the China-Greece comprehensive strategic partnership.
The two sides should make the Chinese-run project at the Greek port of Piraeus “a paradigm of mutually beneficial cooperation between China and Greece,” Wang said.
Wang spoke highly of the positive role Greece plays in the ties between China and Europe.
Kotzias said Greece attaches great importance to the Piraeus port project and is willing to play positive role in the construction of the China-Europe Land-Sea Express Line.
Kotzias said the Greek government hopes to sign cooperation plans with China for the medium-and-long term to promote cooperation in various fields.
