Greece to continue working for lifting EU arms embargo against China
font size    

Greece reiterated in Beijing Thursday that it agrees that the EU arms embargo against China should be lifted, and will continue making efforts to this end.

Greece made this reaffirmation in the China-Greece joint statement signed here Thursday by Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and visiting Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis.

Greece would continue making efforts within the European Union for the early lifting of the arms embargo against China, taking into account the China-EU all-round strategic partnership and relevant conclusions of the EU summit, the statement says.

The EU leaders reaffirmed their political will during the EU summit to work towards ending the ban. China has urged the EU on many occasions to lift the arms embargo at an early date.

China demands that the European Union observe its political commitment and lift the arms embargo against China as soon as possible, so as to remove the last obstacle to China-EU relations, according to a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman.
