UK, China Review Bilateral Agenda

London, Jun 27 (Prensa Latina) Prime Minister David Cameron and his Chinese counterpart, Wen Jiabao, held talks Monday on recent trade agreements and opportunities for further accords.

Jiabao arrived in London on Saturday as part of a six-day tour aimed at strengthening commercial, political and economic ties with Europe.

A source close to Downing Street said the meeting would be an opportunity to review an agenda of issues ranging from climate change to global security, part of annual inter-government contacts, with the most recent meeting between Cameron and Wen in Beijing last November.

Wen was to fly to Germany on Monday evening and then return home on Tuesday.

Chinese government spokesman Hong Lei said Beijing adopted a package of measures to support crisis-hit European nations.

Ever since China surpassed Japan as the No. 2 economy in the world, many European countries have welcomed Chinese investment, while Chinese acquisitions in Europe also have grown in recent years.
