The Czech president, Miloš Zeman, is expected to make another visit to China next autumn, the Czech News Agency reported on Tuesday. Mr. Zeman should attend an international trade fair focused on imports into the world’s most populous state. The Czech head of state has visited Beijing in the past and also hosted the Chinese president, Xi Jinping, in Prague.
President Zeman advocates closer economic ties with China and said in 2014 that he wished to learn how the country had “stabilised” its society. Critics accuse him of ignoring the Communist state’s human rights violations.
