President Zeman to visit China next year

Czech President Miloš Zeman will visit China in 2022, the Czech News Agency wrote on Wednesday, citing Prague Castle. The announcement comes after a phone call between the Czech president and China’s leader Xi Jinping, during which the two men spoke about economic cooperation and the recent tornado incident in Moravia.

According to Castle Spokesman Jiří Ovčáček, Xi considers the Czech Republic as a key partner within the EU.

President Zeman has been to China several times during his time in office, most recently in 2019. A long-time advocate of Czech cooperation with China, President Zeman planned to visit the country again in 2020, but the trip had to be canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
