China is a privileged partner for Romania. After the visit I paid to Beijing in March, I have noticed with pleasure that the two sides have boosted their political dialogue. We very much appreciate the warm welcome we had in Beijing in early September, and the exceptional level of our talks. The Romanian side takes significant action for the results of these meetings to contribute to real progress for implementing the things agreed upon by the two prime ministers.

Also at today's meeting, I'm willing to swap views on topics both parties are interested in," Zhang Gaoli said.
