King Juan Carlos of Spain will be presented with two cute and furry mammals as he departs a visit to Beijing, Chinese authorties said.

A pair of endangered pandas will be given as a gift of mutual freindship to Spains head of state, who is in China to ‘develope a strategic partnership’.

“It will be a lovely present for the Spanish people, and we hope this pair of pandas, as the friendly envoys of the Chinese people, can help promote mutual relations,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang told a news conference.

Beijing presented a pair of pandas to the Chinese territory of Hong Kong in 1999 and another pair this year. It has also offered pandas several times to Taiwan, the independently governed island which China considers its own. Taipei has turned down all offers so far.

It is estimated that their is only about 2,000 Giant Pandas left in the world.

If the Chinese keep this up most of those won’t be located in the world’s 4th largest economy.
