Lula’s visit is a milestone in bilateral-relation history: Wang Yi



Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva’s visit to China is an important milestone in the history of China-Brazil relations, Wang Yi, director of the Office of the Foreign Affairs Commission of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, said on Thursday.

Wang, also a member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, made the remarks when meeting with Celso Amorim, chief special adviser to the president of Brazil, in Beijing.
