BELGRADE - Peng Liyuan, Chinese President Xi Jinping's wife, met here Saturday morning with a group of students and teachers from the Sirogojno special education school.

Clapping to the music and sometimes giving a thumbs-up sign, Peng watched a dance performance of the students, most of whom are with mild and moderate intellectual disability or autism.

Together with Dragica Nikolic, Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic's wife, Peng also watched the students making handicrafts.

"You are amazing! It's so beautiful!" she encouraged the students.

Peng gave toy pandas and toy cars to the students, and received handicrafts the students had made as gifts.

"I must tell you a little secret of mine," Dragica told Peng. "I made my mind to open a special education school like this in Serbia after I had visited China and visited China's special education schools and services."

Peng spoke highly of the achievements the school has made in special education, expressing hopes that special education schools in China and Serbia could promote communication and exchanges so as to raise education quality.
