China, EU to hold summit on debt crisis, bilateral ties


08:17, February 08, 2012

BEIJING, Feb. 7 (Xinhua) -- The 14th China-EU leaders' meeting will be held on Feb. 14 in Beijing, focusing on the current European debt crisis, bilateral ties and cooperation, Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin said on Tuesday.

Premier Wen Jiabao, European Council President Herman Van Rompuy and European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso will be present at the summit, which was previously slated for last October but was postponed due to EU leaders scrambling to combat the eurozone debt crisis.

Other Chinese leaders, such as President Hu Jintao, will also meet with EU leaders at the meeting, Liu said at a regular press briefing.

The leaders will discuss methods for China and EU to jointly cope with challenges under the context of the EU debt crisis, deepen partnerships and mutually stimulate development in their respective countries, Liu said.

The two sides will also exchange views on bilateral cooperation in multiple fields, he said.
