Chinese President Xi Jinping had a telephone conversation with Czech President Zeman on the evening of July 7.

 

Xi emphasized that at present, the international situation is complex and profoundly evolving, and human society is facing common challenges such as novel coronavirus pneumonia epidemic. Maintaining and developing Sino-Czech relations conforms to the trend of the times of peaceful development, cooperation and win-win, and conforms to the common aspiration of the two peoples. Over the years, you have insisted on looking at Sino-Czech relations from the overall situation and long-term perspective, which I highly appreciate. It is hoped that more people from the Czech side will correctly view China and China's development, devote themselves to strengthening communication and cooperation between the two countries, properly handle relevant issues, and keep Sino-Czech relations healthy and dynamic. The two sides should make good use of the "the belt and road initiative" and other platforms to deepen anti-epidemic cooperation, promote resumption of work and production and economic recovery, encourage two-way investment and trade, and strive to create more cooperation highlights.

 

Xi Jinping emphasized that the outcomes of the China-CEEC Leaders Summit are being implemented item by item, and hoped that the Czech side would work together with China to create more opportunities for the common development of both sides. It is hoped that the Czech side will play an active role in strengthening China-EU dialogue and cooperation and achieving mutual benefit and win-win results.

 

Zeman said that I would like to express sincere congratulations on the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China and wish China greater achievements under the leadership of General Secretary Xi Jinping. I agree with President Xi Jinping's views on Czech-Chinese relations. The Czech side is committed to strengthening friendly cooperation with China and is willing to communicate closely with China to eliminate interference and ensure the healthy and smooth development of bilateral relations. It is hoped that both sides will make joint efforts to promote bilateral economic cooperation. I advocate that all countries should unite and cooperate to jointly meet global challenges such as terrorism. The Czech Republic is willing to serve as a link between the EU and China. I wish Beijing Winter Olympics a success.
