BEIJING — China will continue to support the European integration process, State Councilor Yang Jiechi said on July 21.
“China will remain committed to deepening China-Europe relations and practical cooperation,” Yang said when meeting with visiting Luxembourg Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn.
Both sides should take the opportunity of the 45th anniversary of diplomatic relations next year to consolidate trust and cooperation to usher in a new era of bilateral relations, Yang said.
China is an important partner, Asselborn said, adding that Luxembourg is willing to strengthen exchanges and cooperation with China and support mutually beneficial cooperation between Europe and China.
Foreign Minister Wang Yi also held talks with Asselborn earlier on July 21.
