Chinese Premier Li Keqiang arrived Sunday for an official visit to Chile, the first South American country with which China forged diplomatic ties and also the first Latin American nation with which China signed a free trade agreement.

Chile is the last leg of Li's four-nation tour to Latin America, which has already taken him to Brazil, Colombia and Peru.

During his stay here, Li is expected to hold talks with Chilean President Michelle Bachelet and the two leaders will witness the signing of several cooperative documents between the two governments.

Li will also deliver a speech at the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) in Santiago.
