Chinese President Xi Jinping held talks with Danish Queen Margrethe II in Beijing on April 24 and the two heads of state voiced their hope to elevate their bilateral ties.
Queen Margrethe II is paying a state visit to China from Thursday to Monday at Xi’s invitation, her second China trip as queen. In September 1979, she visited China as the first Western head of state to do so after China adopted its reform and opening-up policy.
During Thursday’s talks, Xi said Queen Margrethe II’s two visits have witnessed the historical process from the beginning to the comprehensive deepening of China’s reform and opening-up, and pushed the development of the bilateral ties over the past 35 years.
