16:52, October 21, 2011

BEIJING, Oct. 21 (Xinhua) -- The China-European Union (EU) summit that is slated for next Tuesday will be postponed due to the tight schedule of EU leaders to deal with the eurozone debt crisis.

In a phone call with Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao on Friday, European Council President Herman Van Rompuy said he and European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso will attend a series of EU meetings in recent days to discuss the eurozone debt crisis.

He apologized to the Chinese side for the postponement of the summit.

The two sides agreed to keep contact on the new arrangement of the 14th China-EU summit.
