COPENHAGEN, June 14 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Hu Jintao arrived here Thursday afternoon for a state visit to Denmark.

Denmark rolled down red carpet for President Hu, the first Chinese head of state who ever visited the North European country since the two countries established diplomatic ties 62 years ago.

Danish Queen Margrethe II and members of the royal family greeted Hu at the Kastrup International Airport. The Queen held a welcome ceremony for Hu and accompanied him to inspect the guard of honors.

Holding the presidency of the European Union, Denmark is working hard to coordinate and push forward EU countries' effort to jointly address the sovereign debt crisis. According to Chinese officials, President Hu's visit to Copenhagen will send out positive signals that China will firmly support Europe's efforts to combat the debt crisis and advance its comprehensive strategic partnership with EU.

In a written statement released upon his arrival, Hu vowed to lift the ties between Beijing and Copenhagen to a new level.

Hu said that bilateral ties have come a long way and now enjoy sound and all-round growth in a wide range of areas. He expressed the readiness to take China-Denmark comprehensive strategic partnership to a new level.
