“Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic spoke with Chinese Ambassador Li Manchang this morning and said that (Chinese) President Xi Jinping accepting the invitation to return to Serbia is very important for our country, noting at the same time the appreciation to China and its leadership of the support they provide to Serbia and its citizens .

Vucic pointed out that the friendship between the Serbian and Chinese people was steel and that no one could ruin that friendship, which, he said, was repeated by the Chinese president.

‘This friendship has been demonstrated, proven and confirmed in the most difficult moments through Serbian history, and we are very grateful to the people of China and its leadership, headed by President Xi Jinping, for the support it provides to Serbia, our people and citizens,’ the Serbian president said.” (translated from Vecernje Novosti)
