China and Greece have agreed to strengthen mutual cooperation under the Belt and Road Initiative. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi is in Greece to attend the first Ancient Civilization Forum co-organized by China.

While meeting with Wang, Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos said he hopes Greece can participate in the Belt and Road Initiative and play a constructive role. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras expressed his expectation to attend the upcoming Belt and Road Forum scheduled in mid-May in Beijing. Tsipras told Wang that Greece aims to turn itself into an international transportation hub. He cited the Piraeus Port as a highlight of bilateral cooperation.

During a meeting with his Greek counterpart Nikos Kotzias, Wang said this year marks the 45th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Greece. China hopes that the two countries can expand trade and investment ties.

The forum will kick off on Monday. Other countries taking part are Iran, Egypt, India, and Peru, among others.
