China hopes for fair evaluation on its energy cooperation with Africa: FM spokesman


08:23, January 21, 2012

BEIJING, Jan. 20 (Xinhua) -- China hopes its energy cooperation with Africa will be fairly and objectively evaluated by the outside world, Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin said Friday.

Liu made the comments in response to a question on China-Africa energy cooperation at a regular press conference in Beijing.

Liu said it is one of the cornerstones of China's foreign policy to strengthen friendly cooperative relations with Africa.

China has been committed to developing economic and trade relations with Africa on the basis of equality, mutual benefit and common development.

China-Africa economic cooperation has effectively promoted African countries' economic and social development and brought substantial benefits to the African people, he said.

He stressed that energy cooperation is neither the whole content of China-Africa cooperation, nor the starting point of China's policy toward Africa.

China has fully adhered to international practices and market rules in meeting its rational needs for energy and resources, he said.

China has also been committed to helping relevant African countries enhance their self-reliance capacity and bringing benefits to their people, he added.
