The Chinese government highly values the development of China-Greece relations and is willing to make joint efforts with the new Greek government to further deepen traditional friendship, enhance policy communication, promote the alignment of development strategies, deepen practical cooperation within the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative and push forward the constant and in-depth development of the China-Greece comprehensive strategic partnership so as to better benefit the two countries and peoples.
