ATHENS, Oct. 3 (Xinhua) -- The following are some quotable quotes from Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao during his official visit to Greece:

"China has bought and is now holding Greece's treasury bonds, and will continue to take positive attitude to participate in the purchase of Greece's new treasury bonds." -- Wen said at his meeting with Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou on Saturday.

"China will set up a special fund on China-Greece shipping cooperation, with the initial part of 5 billion U.S. dollars, in a bid to promote cooperation in maritime transportation between the two countries."

Wen said he believes it is realizable for trade volume between the two countries to double and reach the goal of 8 billion dollars in five years, adding China will expand the import from Greece.

"China will try its best to support the eurozone countries, and support Greece to overcome the financial crisis and realize economic recovery and healthy development of fiscal policy." -- Wen told reporters after his talks with Papandreou.
