Chinese and Serbian Ruling Parties Pledge ‘All-Time’ Friendship
The ruling parties in China and Serbia on Monday pledged to forge ever-closer links, as a Chinese Communist Party delegation in Belgrade met Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Prime Minister Ana Brnabic.
Both sides hailed the strong relations between the two countries but also between the two ruling parties - the Chinese Communist Party and Serbian Progressive Party, SNS.
Chinese Community Politburo member Yang Xiaodu, the Chinese delegation leader, told Serbian Prime Minister Brnabic - who only joined the Progressive Party four days ago - that the two parties and countries were "all-time friends and important partners" that shared the same values of service to the people.
At a meeting with President Vucic, who is also the SNS leader, Xiaodu said the goal of the visit was to realise previous agreements made between the two presidents and intensify exchanges between the two parties.
"I am sincerely thankful to the Serbian Progressive Party, especially to you personally, for your hospitality and careful organisation for my delegation, especially [to SNS] vice-president [Marko] Djuric [who] is with me and our delegation all the time and has done everything for us," Xiaodu said.
