mrkic-u-kiniForeign Minister Ivan Mrkic, who is visiting Beijing as a member of the Serbian delegation, assessed that the agreements signed with China reflected translation into action of the overall political atmosphere existing between the two countries, which never existed in the past.

"It was a very successful visit and highly specific agreements were reached, demonstrating Chinese support to Serbia and its economic development; however, the agreements also demonstrated support to our territorial integrity. Everything that we are committed to regarding Kosovo is supported by China", underlined Ivan Mrkic after the meeting with Chinese Minister of Foreign Affairs Wang Yi.

Minister Mrkic discussed with his Chinese colleague a number of issues that were not on the agenda of the two Presidents.
"We agreed to meet during the UN General Assembly and both the President and Foreign Minster of China readily accepted the invitation to visit Belgrade", Mrkic said, confident that the exact date of the visit would be determined in the coming months.

Minister Mrkic further stated that already on the first day of the visit to Beijing by our delegation, headed by President Nikolic, it was clear that it was a very successful one. "The importance of the visit of President Nikolic is best demonstrated by the fact that this was the first visit by a head of an Eastern or Central European state since the election of the new Chinese leadership. This indicates the importance attached to us both in terms of treatment as well as the realization of everything that had been agreed upon", Mrkic said for Tanjug news agency.

Foreign Minister Mrkic underlined that China was not only the world's second economic power, but also a country with largest foreign currency reserves and the world's biggest exporter, with largest investments from all over the world. "It was with such a country that our President signed a Declaration today, which rarely happens. People should know that the Chinese authorities do not sign such declarations every day", indicated the Serbian Foreign Minister.
