George Manginis, member of the Executive Committee of the Benaki Museum, looks at the ancient Chinese porcelain dish exhibited at the Benaki Museum in the Greek capital Athens on May 19, 2017. Greece's National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST) in Athens has been building new bridges of intercultural dialogue with China as part of a wider Sino-Greek effort to bring the two countries and peoples closer, EMST's Director Katerina Koskina told Xinhua in a recent interview. "China and Greece are both ancient countries, have huge civilizations behind them, and you can relate to that. As far as I can tell from my experience in Beijing, the Chinese have a deep respect and admiration for the Greek civilization and I think that works both ways. It is the same for Greeks too," she underlined. She also expressed hope that ties between Greece and China in the field of art could deepen in the future. (Xinhua/Marios Lolos)
