On October 27, 2021 local time, Serbian National Assembly Speaker Ivica Dacic met with State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi in Belgrade.

Wang Yi conveyed Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC) Li Zhanshu's cordial greetings to National Assembly Speaker Dacic, and congratulated Dacic on his election as national assembly speaker. Wang Yi said, Mr. Speaker has been committed to the friendship of the two countries. When China was hit by the COVID-19, Dacic, as foreign minister, took the lead to visit China and showed his support for the Chinese people, which China will never forget. Developing friendship with China has become the consensus across all parties in Serbia, and China-Serbia "iron-clad friendship" has been recognized and supported by the 1.4 billion Chinese people. China and Serbia should continue to stand firm together when it comes to "issues of right or wrong", jointly defend the legitimate rights and interests of developing countries, jointly safeguard the basic principles of international relations, and jointly promote international fairness and justice.

Wang Yi said, the cooperation between the two legislatures is an important part of China-Serbia relations. This year, NPC Chairman Li Zhanshu held a video meeting with Mr. Speaker, and reached important consensus. The two legislatures maintain close contacts, and carry out exchanges in the fields such as state governance, legislative oversight, and national development strategies, providing legal and policy support for bilateral cooperation in various areas. China is willing to strengthen the cooperation of the two legislatures, and further cement popular and social foundation for China-Serbia friendship.

Wang Yi also briefed Dacic on the rich experiences and vital significance of China's development of whole-process people's democracy.

Dacic asked Wang Yi to convey his best wishes to NPC Chairman Li Zhanshu. Dacic said, China and Serbia always respect, trust and support each other. Serbian people are the sincerest friends of Chinese people, and Serbia is firmly committed to developing friendly cooperation with China. Serbia is willing to carry out high-level visits and exchanges on state governance between the two legislatures, actively promote all-round cooperation between Serbia and China and play a more positive role in the all-round development of bilateral relations.
