Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang joined Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov at a press conference for the 16+1 summit, held in Sofia, on Saturday. The Chinese Prime Minister addressed the idea that the summit is intended to divide Europe. «There is a concept that the cooperation of the 16+1 Format is dedicated to dividing Europe. But this is a misunderstanding. The truth is that there is... Еще no conflict in the strategic interests of China and the EU,» Keqiang said. «All we want free trade and well respected business-rules», he added. The 16+1 summit was established in 2012 as a multilateral platform, aimed at cultivating ties and deepening cooperation between Central and Eastern European nations and China.
