In Sochi for the Winter Olympic Games, President Milos Zeman on Friday met with his Chinese counterpart President Xi Jinping for talks focusing largely on economic cooperation. The two statesmen agreed to renew the activities of a Czech-Chinese commission for economic cooperation, which last met in 2009, and the Czech president said Prague would host a meeting of Chinese and central and east European leaders in view of revitalizing business ties. The last such meeting took place in Warsaw in 2012. The Czech and Chinese presidents also exchanged mutual invitations for state visits. The last official visit by a Chinese leader to Prague took place before the fall of communism in 1987.
