Wu, chairman of the Standing Committee of China's National People's Congress(NPC), said in a written statement upon his arrival that China attached great importance to the development of Sino-Serbian relations and regarded Serbia as a good friend and good partner.

China is willing to further consolidate its bilateral ties with Serbia in the spirit of mutual respect, equality and win-win policy, Wu said.

"I am looking forward to exchanging views with the Serbian leaders on Sino-Serbian relations and issues of mutual concern during my stay here," he added.

Wu is the first NPC chairman to visit Serbia over the past decade. China and Serbia have kept long-time friendship and shared mutual support and respect.

Serbian President Boris Tadic visited China last August and reached agreements with Chinese President Hu Jintao on establishing the strategic partnership, which opened a new page for the relationship.

In an interview with Xinhua, Chinese Ambassador Wei Jinghua said Wu's visit was of vital and far-reaching historic significance, adding that it would push the two countries' bilateral ties to a higher level.
