Chinese President Xi Jinping and European Council President Charles Michel have met in Beijing. Amid a fuel crisis, persistent inflation and the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the visit is a chance for both China and the EU to talk. President Xi underscored the significance of China-EU relations, calling for both sides to strengthen international cooperation. Michel urged both sides to strengthen communication through direct dialogue and work together to better cope with global challenges. In recent weeks, Chinese and European leaders have stepped up engagement. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz visited Beijing in November. President Xi also met French President Emmanuel Macron during the G20 Summit. Could the meetings bring stability to China-Europe ties, despite a complex international situation?
