More and more countries, especially African ones, give positive and objective comments on China-Africa relations.

Zhai also responded to such hot issues as the "neo-colonial theory" involving China in Africa, the hindrance to democracy and good governance in Africa by China's principle of non-interference in other countries' internal affairs, China to assume more international responsibilities in Africa and whether China-Africa relations undermine other countries' interests in Africa. He urged to abandon the Cold War mentality, reject ideological bias and view China-Africa relations in an objective and fair position.
