Xi Jinping called on the EU not to clash

Chinese President Xi Jinping has claimed that China wants to make the EU an important economic and trade partner and cooperate in areas such as artificial intelligence.
According to a report from Europe News Network today, Xi Jinping told EU leaders at the first face-to-face China-EU summit in four years that China and Europe should not see each other as rivals or clash because of their different political systems.
At the meeting, which discussed a wide range of issues, from trade imbalances to Ukraine, Xi Jinping stated that China wants to make the EU an important economic and trade partner and cooperate in areas such as artificial intelligence.
According to CCTV, China's official channel, Xi Jinping called on the European Union to end all interference in bilateral relations.
Ahead of the summit, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told EU ambassadors on Monday that Europe should choose peace and stability over a "new Cold War".
A European official told reporters in Brussels earlier in the week that there were no results to mention at the summit and that there would be no joint statement.
While some EU officials have visited Beijing since China lifted its virus restrictions, little progress has been made on key issues in the relationship. Recently Borrell's private secretary and top EU diplomat Enrique Mora visited China in November.
The EU also argues that the nearly €400 billion trade deficit with China reflects restrictions on EU businesses.
