Chinese President Xi Jinping had a telephone conversation with Serbian President Vucic on June 24th.

 

Xi Jinping pointed out that the Serbian people are a nation that values affection, and the "hardcore friendship" between China and Serbia is precious, which deserves our firm maintenance and promotion from generation to generation. At present, both China and Serbia are facing new opportunities and challenges. China is willing to work with Serbia to view and develop bilateral relations from a strategic and long-term perspective, so as to make China-Serbia friendly relations last for a long time.

 

Xi Jinping emphasized that we should firmly support each other in our efforts to safeguard their respective national sovereignty and security. China supports the development path chosen by the Serbian people according to their national conditions. The two sides should accelerate the high-quality construction of the "the belt and road initiative", foster new growth points for cooperation, share opportunities and seek common development. We should work together to meet global challenges such as novel coronavirus pneumonia epidemic, economic recovery and climate change. As long as Serbia needs it, China is willing to continue to provide assistance to Serbia in fighting the epidemic. It is necessary to strengthen cooperation in multilateral affairs, firmly safeguard the international system with the United Nations as the core, defend international law and the basic norms of international relations, and practice true multilateralism. It is necessary to implement the consensus and achievements of the China-CEEC Leaders' Summit and promote the continuous development of China-CEEC cooperation.

 

Vucic expressed warm congratulations on the centennial birthday of the Communist Party of China. Under the leadership of the Communist Party of China, China has made great achievements that attract worldwide attention, achieved national prosperity and became an important force for promoting world peace and development. I firmly believe that the CPC will continue to lead the Chinese people to stride forward along the road of socialism with Chinese characteristics. China is a great friend of Serbia, and Serbia-China relations are at the best level in history. Serbia is proud of the "hardcore friendship" between Serbia and China. China has provided valuable assistance to Serbia in fighting the novel coronavirus pneumonia epidemic, deepened and consolidated its traditional friendship, and hopes to continue to strengthen cooperation in vaccines and other fields. Serbia is willing to actively participate in the joint construction of the "the belt and road initiative" and expand pragmatic cooperation in various fields. Serbia firmly supports and will continue to actively promote China-CEEC cooperation. May the friendship between Serbia and China last forever!
