Greece was accepted as a member of the China and Central and Eastern European Countries (CEEC) group on Friday at a leaders' event in Dubrovnik co-chaired by Premier Li Keqiang and hosted by Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic.

"We welcomed Greece to join the China-CEEC cooperation platform at the meeting," Li told a news conference.

"The meeting demonstrated that participant countries safeguard multilateralism and the global trading system based on World Trade Organization rules," he said.

Li announced that China will host leaders from the 17 countries in the next year, five years after the city of Suzhou, Jiangsu province, hosted such an event in 2015.
