BEIJING (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 14th March, 2019) Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi is due to visit Brussels on March 18 to take part in a high-level Chinese-European strategic dialogue to discuss bilateral cooperation and international issues, the foreign ministry's spokesman, Lu Kang, said on Thursday.

"Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi will head for Brussels on March 18 to participate in the ninth round of the Chinese-European high-level strategic dialogue at the invitation of Federica Mogherini, the high representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy," the diplomat stated at a briefing.

The parties will hold an "in-depth discussion of issues of mutual interest," including bilateral relations between Beijing and Brussels, as well as regional and international issues, Lu added.

Both China and the European Union plan to explore possibilities of strengthening cooperation with each other, he noted.

On Tuesday, the European Commission and Mogherini published a list of 10 actions needed for balancing relations with Beijing amid China's growing economic power and political influence. According to the authors of the initiative, the EU should deepen its interaction with China to promote common interests at the global level, but also look for more balanced conditions governing economic relations. In addition, the EU considers it necessary to adapt to the changing economic realities and strengthen its domestic policy and industrial base.
