Former Romanian PM: Good Sino-Europe ties esse

  In the 21th century the world cannot be imagined without very close relationship between China and Europe. Better ec

onomic relations with China not only benefits China but also Europe, said Victor Ponta, former president of the Socialist and D

emocratic Party and former Prime Minister of Romania in an interview with People’s Daily Online.Ponta is in Beijing to attend

the 5th China-Europe High-level Political Parties Forum held from May 17-18. He believes these forums are very useful initiatives fr

om both the Chinese side and European side. “I think political decisions should be taken into joint consideration by the Europea

n political parties and Communist Party of China because only taking these decisions we will develop and work together for the good of ou

r people,” said Ponta.Ponta has a high opinion of China’s contribution to global peace. “I thin

k the role China is playing in the world not only as the second larges

t economy but also a dynamic player on the international level is absolutely essential. The worl

d now obviously cannot work on the peaceful development without the contribu

tion of China. I congratulate Chinese people and Chinese leaders for all the work in the last decade,” he said.
