German Chancellor Angela Merkel visits China

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has kicked off an official visit to China.

This is already Merkel’s eighth trip to China since she became Chancellor in 2005.

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang held a red-carpet ceremony in Beijing to welcome Merkel on Thursday morning before they held talks at the Great Hall of the People.

Merkel’s visit is widely seen as another attempt to further boost Germany’s ties with China.
