European Council President Donald Tusk has hailed the "clear and important" message conveyed by Chinese President Xi Jinping at the 19th National of the of China(CPC).

Tusk made the remarks on Wednesday when he received the credentials presented by Ambassador Zhang Ming, the new head of the Chinese Mission to the European Union (EU).

The EU attaches great importance to and prioritises EU-relations in the bloc's foreign policy, said Tusk.

He also said that he sets a premium on the good working and personal relations with Xi and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang.

"I believe that the EU and China will cooperate in broader areas with brighter prospects," said Tusk.

Tusk was briefed by Zhang on the CPC held from October 18-24 in Beijing.
