BEIJING -- Italy is prone to EU's lifting of arms sales embargo against China, said visiting Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi here on Monday.
Prodi made the remarks when meeting the press after holding official talks with Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao.
The EU enacted its arms embargo on China after the events of 1989. China considers the embargo a barrier to the smooth development of normal relations between China and the EU, both of whom have vowed to deepen a strategic partnership.
"China is willing to expand cooperation with Italy on economy and trade, investment and especially on small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)," said Chinese President Hu Jintao in a meeting with Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi.Calling the Year of Italy in China "a big success", Hu proposed that the two nations intensify exchanges in the sectors of science and technology, education and culture.
Hu also expressed appreciation for Italy's one-China policy.
