TIANJIN - China vowed closer cooperation with Albania as Premier Li Keqiang discussed plans to construct a highway linking Albania and Macedonia with Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama on Sept 10.

Li made the pledge during a meeting with Rama on the sidelines of the Summer Davos in north China’s Tianjin city.

Hailing the traditional friendship with Albania, Li said the two countries should use the 65th anniversary of their diplomatic relations as an opportunity to improve high-level exchanges and promote practical cooperation in all fields.

He said China and Albania complement each other economically and have good prospects for energy, agriculture and infrastructure cooperation.
