On a visit to China, President Milos Zeman on Monday met for talks with his Chinese counterpart President Xi Jinping. The Czech head of state assured his host that the Czech Republic fully respects China's sovereignty and territorial integrity including Taiwan and Tibet and will not interfere in the country’s internal affairs. Mr. Zeman’s four day visit to China, the first by a Czech head of state in ten years, comes as part of the government’s efforts to reset relations with Beijing and open the way to intensified business and trade. During the four day visit the Czech president said he would welcome Bank of China’s entry into the Czech Republic and promised that Prague would push for an easing of the EUs visa regime for China.
