African media highlight Chinese president's speeches at UN summit
font size    

The African media have in recent days highlighted Chinese President Hu Jintao's important speeches at the summit on the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the United Nations last week.

The Uganda radio highly appraised Hu's four-point proposal for the UN reform at its prime time Friday night.

The report stressed Hu's proposal of "building a fair, rational and effective Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) evaluation framework to conduct timely reviews of the progress made by different countries in this regard and monitor and promote the delivery of promised international cooperation and development assistance."

The radio also welcomed Hu's pledge to "increase in the next three years China's assistance to developing countries, African countries in particular, by providing them with anti-malaria drugs and other medicines, helping them set up and improve medical facilities and training medical staff."

The state-run Kenya news agency also covered Hu's speeches at the United Nations, his four-point proposal for the UN reform in particular.

South Africa's African Times published Hu's speeches and pictures at the UN summit on its front page.

An article headlined "China woos Africa, South Africa criticizes United Nations" hit the top-line.

The Chinese-language paper highlighted Hu's speeches concerning Africa, emphasizing Hu's proposal to increase the representation of the developing countries and allow more countries, especially small and medium-sized ones, to participate in the decision-making of the world body.

"Developed countries should shoulder a greater responsibility for a universal, coordinated and balanced development in the world while developing countries should make fuller use of their own advantages to develop themselves," the paper quoted Hu as saying.

Hu's meeting with his Mozambican counterpart Armando Emilio Guebuza and Gabonese counterpart El Hadj Omar Bongo Ondimba on the sidelines of the summit showed that China pays great attention to African countries and promoting cooperation and exchanges with African countries in the fields of politics, economy and culture.

China Express, a pan-Africa Chinese-language newspaper, concentrated its report on Hu's announcement of five concrete measures to help other developing countries.

The Chinese president arrived in New York last Tuesday. During his three-day stay at the UN headquarters, he made a four-point proposal for building a harmonious world; a four-point proposal regarding the reform of the United Nations; and announced a series of Chinese aid initiatives to help the world's poorest countries, including zero-tariff treatment, debt relief, 10 billion US dollars in concessional loans and job training.
