“It has definitely been our priority to deepen our friendship with China,” Helle Thorning-Schmidt told Xinhua in an exclusive interview at Christiansborg, the government house.

“This goes a long way back, but we have prioritized to really deepen our relations with China and hopefully we have succeeded. We are at an all-time high in our relationship with China, and we are happy with that. This is part of our goal and this is what we wanted to achieve,” she said.

Denmark and China have enjoyed warm diplomatic ties over the past 65 years, and forged a comprehensive strategic partnership covering political, economic, cultural and other affairs in 2008.
