Polish President Andrzej Duda met with Chinese President Xi Jinping as part of his visit to Beijing and held talks with him on Ukraine and the expansion of bilateral trade.

Visit of the leader of a NATO member state to a country that supported Russia in its full-scale invasion of Ukraine, was accompanied by a guard of honor and a 21-volley salute, reports  Associated Press agency.

At a meeting at the Great Hall of the People, Duda told Xi Jinping that relations between Poland – a former ally of Russia that inspired democratic movements with its desire for democracy – and communist China remain strong.

Xi Jinping described relations as friendly.

"Over the past 75 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations, bilateral relations have developed steadily, constantly injecting new energy into the traditional friendship between the two countries"– said the Chinese leader.

One of the topics of the negotiations was the Russian-Ukrainian conflict.

Duda said that he outlined in detail Poland’s point of view on this conflict, on the migration pressure exerted by Russia and its ally Belarus on the Polish border, on security in Europe and the need for peace.

"We were heard", – he said.
