ADDIS ABABA, Jan. 29 (Xinhua) -- Top Chinese political advisor Jia Qinglin's just-concluded visit helped boost traditional friendship and cooperation with the African Union and Ethiopia, Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi said.

During his stay in Addis Ababa, Jia, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, paid an official goodwill visit to Ethiopia and attended the opening ceremony of the 18th African Union (AU) summit.

At various bilateral and multilateral meetings, Jia elaborated China's policies on Africa and put forward a host of proposals for future development of China-Africa relations, Yang said.

The top Chinese political advisor's visit was of profound significance to further deepening a new-type China-Africa strategic partnership and strengthening unity and cooperation among developing countries, he said.


Jia made clear on various occasions that mutual understanding, mutual respect, mutual support, mutual benefit and the pursuit of a win-win outcome was the source of the China-Africa friendship and served as a cornerstone of their relations, Yang said.

The advisor said China highly valued its traditional friendship with Africa and would stand firmly with African nations.

China also respected Africa's choice of its own development path and supported its efforts to settle regional issues on its own as well as its drive for self-improvement, he said.
