Minister Dacic and Chinese officials fully support the selected paths of development taken by their respective countries

On the third day of his visit to the People’s Republic of China, First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Serbia Ivica Dacic met Minister of International Cooperation of the Chinese Communist Party Central Committee Sung Tao.

The talks highly appraised, once again, the overall relations between the two countries, underlining in particular the contribution of the Communist Party of China and the political parties in Serbia to the enhancement of the bilateral relations between the two countries.

The interlocutors confirmed that they would continue to uphold the vital interests, and fully support the avenues of development to which the respective countries were committed. Invitations were exchanged for visits to Serbia and China, respectively.

Minister Dacic visited the Beijing University of International Studies, where he had talks with the Chair of the University Board and Secretary General Gu Shaoyuan, and met a group of students studying the Serbian language.

Gu Shaoyuan presented the new Serbian language teaching programme at this University, unique in China by its seven-year studies, including secondary and university levels. The Serbian Foreign Minister underlined that broader Serbian language studies in China, and Chinese language studies in Serbia, were important for deepening the ties between the two countries.

During his visit to China, Minister Dacic gave many interviews to the Chinese media, including Renmin Ribao, Global Times, CCTV, Chinese International Radio and the Xinhua News Agency.
