11:01, November 03, 2011

BEIJING, Nov. 2 (Xinhua) -- A senior Chinese political advisor met with the President of the Economic and Social Council (ESC) of Greece, Christos Polyzogopoulos, in Beijing Wednesday, calling for joint efforts to push forward relations between the two countries.

China and Greece both boast a long history and splendid culture, and people in the two countries have forged a profound friendship during long-term exchanges between the two sides, said Wang Gang, a member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and Vice Chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC).

Political mutual trust continues to deepen and bilateral friendly cooperations have reaped rich rewards, said Wang, also president of the China Economic and Social Council (CESC).

China and Greece have supported each other in difficult moments such as the international financial crisis, he said, adding relations between the two countries are a model for how countries with radically different civilizations, social systems and levels of development can reach mutual understanding and live in harmony.

Wang said since the establishment of relations between the CESC and the Greek ESC, cooperation between the two sides has continued to develop.

He said the CESC looks forward to further exchanges with the ESC, so as to contribute to the development of comprehensive strategic partnership between China and Greece.
