In addition, Wu suggested the two legislative bodies play their due roles in enhancing pragmatic cooperation between the two countries in areas such as trade, investment and culture.

Croatia is China's largest trading partner in southeast Europe, and bilateral trade hit 1.6 billion U.S. dollars in 2011, up by 16.2 percent over the previous year.

"China has always regarded Croatia as a reliable friend and partner in southeast Europe, and is willing to work with the Croatian side to promote the development of bilateral ties in a better and more efficient manner," said Wu.

Sprem, for his part, spoke highly of the Croatia-China relationship, saying that the Croatian government, parliament and parties share consensus on developing sound relations with China.

Sprem also reiterated Croatia's firm adherence to the one-China policy.
