China attaches importance to Africa's concerns, interests: FM


14:09, January 07, 2012

WINDHOEK, Jan. 6 (Xinhua) -- China will, as always, attach importance to Africa's concerns and interests, visiting Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi said here on Thursday.

"We will support African countries in their efforts to independently resolve African issues, seek balanced economic and social development and uphold their own legitimate rights and interests in international affairs through unity," Yang said.

"We will make even greater contribution to peace and development in Africa and to the common development of China and Africa."

Yang said that African countries share a stronger wish to strengthen cooperation with China, and have proposed to broaden the scope, increase the scale and upgrade the level of our cooperation. This will go a long way in boosting China-Africa cooperation.

Yang arrived here on Wednesday on a three-day visit to Namibia, the third leg of his three-nation African tour, which also took him to Cote d' Ivoire and Niger.

Earlier Yang held talks with Namibian Prime Minister Nahas Angula and Foreign Minister Utomi Nujoma respectively on ways to enhance bilateral relations and on regional and international issues.
