On October 28, 2021 local time, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic met with State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi and invited him to meet the press together afterward.

Vucic said that during this visit, the two sides held in-depth discussions on consolidating Serbia-China friendship and intensifying mutually beneficial cooperation and reached extensive consensus. Recent years see fruitful Serbia-China cooperation, as the two-way trade volume tripled in five years, which fully reflects the high-level mutual political trust and the extraordinary "ironclad friendship". The Serbian side is sincerely grateful for the consistent support of President Xi Jinping and the Chinese government. Serbia fully agrees to China's proposal on expanding bilateral cooperation in innovation and believes that with China's support, Serbia will usher in a new stage of development and advance with the times.

Wang Yi said that there is a special bond between the Chinese people and Serbia. The 1.4 billion Chinese people regard Serbia at the other end of Eurasia as an ironclad friend. The 1.4 billion Chinese people are familiar with Serbian President Vucic who firmly safeguards national sovereignty and dignity and unswervingly pursues a friendly policy towards China.

Wang Yi said that Serbia is a country that sticks to principles, and the Serbians are a nation of moral integrity and sincere friendship. The Chinese people are proud to have such a good and faithful friend.

Wang Yi said that under the strategic guidance of the two heads of state, China-Serbia relations have endured the test of time and are full of vitality, and our friendship is unshakable and solid as a rock. He thanked the Serbian side for its consistent support for China's legitimate stance on issues related to China's core interests and major concerns. China is ready to stand together with Serbia in its efforts to safeguard state sovereignty, independence and national dignity. The practical bilateral cooperation has yielded fruitful results and truly benefited the two peoples, showing even broader prospects.

Wang Yi said that despite the irresponsible remarks made by certain forces on China-Serbia friendship, we both know it well that China and Serbia are safeguarding our respective legitimate rights and interests, safeguarding the basic norms governing international relations and upholding international fairness and justice. To maintain and further our friendship is in line with the trend of times and is on the right side of history. We are delighted and satisfied with the current China-Serbia relations. We are fully confident in the future of our relations and believe that a brighter future will come.
