Special> Premier Li Keqiang Visits UK, Greece
UPDATED: June 24, 2014
Greek Media Count Fruits of Premier Li's Greece Visit

Greek media on June 22 counted the fruits of Chinese Premier Li Keqiang's three-day visit to Greece, which ended on June 21, saying it has furthered the mutually beneficial cooperation between the two countries.

An article entitled Beijing casts a vote of confidence to Greece on the news website http://www.real.gr/defaultTab.aspx?page=tabhome said Li's visit laid the foundation for the long-term Greece-China cooperation that will bring significant Chinese investments to Greece. "Li's schedule indicated China's interest in investments."

"During all the meetings and talks, the Greek premier and his Chinese counterpart sent multiple messages to enhance the Greece-China cooperation which will boost both economies," it said.

Another article entitled "Greece can become the strategic link in China's entry to Europe" was published on the financial news website http://www.briefingnews.gr/.

"Greek officials do not hide their satisfaction with the results of the Chinese premier's visit to our country," it said.

"China not only wants to strengthen its ties with Greece for the mutual benefit of the two countries, but to strengthen its economic presence in Europe through the Greek link. The benefits for Greece are self-evident," the article said.

"The most important was Li's statement that China will support European bonds, especially Greek national bonds. This is the most powerful weapon China possesses in its effort to enhance its financial access to the European Union," the article said.

Li's visit of Greece was the second leg of his six-day Europe tour, which had taken him to Britain.

The trip, Li's first to the two countries as premier, has infused fresh vigor into China's ties and cooperation with the two countries and with Europe as a whole.
