Chinese President Xi Jinping has pledged his country's continued investment in Greece as a successful part of China's Belt and Road economic initiative.
Xi is currently on an official visit to Greece. China's state-run TV said he visited Greece's largest port Piraeus, near Athens, on Monday with Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
A Chinese state-owned company has been managing and upgrading shipping facilities at Piraeus since acquiring a majority stake of the port in 2016.
Xi described the port project as a successful example of China-Greece cooperation.
He said he has seen that the Belt and Road initiative is no longer a slogan, but a brilliant reality.
Xi earlier told Mitsotakis of his plan to make Piraeus the biggest transshipment port in the Mediterranean and expand transport between China and Europe.
China hopes to make the port project a foothold for increasing its economic influence in Europe, but some on the European side are wary of China's ambitions.
