The Danish Foreign Minister visits China


Denmark’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, Lars Løkke Rasmussen, will visit China on 16-18 August 2023 to meet his Chinese counterpart Minister for Foreign Affairs Wang Yi

The two ministers will discuss a new bilateral Danish-Chinese work program. Danish Minister for Foreign Affairs Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen states as follows:
