KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad will be meeting with China’s President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang separately when he visits Beijing next week, says China's Ambassador to Malaysia Bai Tian on Thursday (April 18).

Dr Mahathir has accepted Xi’s invitation to attend the second International Belt and Road Summit, to be hosted by President Xi.

Bai Tian says Dr Mahathir will attend the opening ceremony of the Summit by Xi on April 26 and speak at a roundtable discussion and high-level meeting on April 27.

“Dr Mahathir will meet with Xi and Li separately on the sidelines of the Belt and Road Summit and Forum.

“At the bilateral meetings, the leaders will exchange views on bilateral issues, with the 45th anniversary of Malaysia-China relations in the background, and map out guidelines for further cooperation.”

China is Malaysia’s largest trading partner and is a leading investor in the country.

Malaysia is a member of the Belt and Road Initiative, launched by Xi in 2013.
