The two countries had improved mutual trust and expanded cooperation in many fields in recent years, he said.

"The Chinese government values friendly cooperation with Bulgaria and will make joint efforts with the Bulgarian side to continue to promote political mutual trust, economic cooperation and personnel exchanges to achieve common development," Xi said.
