DURBAN, South Africa, March 28 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping said here Thursday that his country is ready to boost cooperation with Uganda, Mozambique and Ethiopia.

Xi made the remarks during separate meetings with Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, Mozambican President Armando Guebuza and Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn.

Calling Museveni a witness of China-Africa friendship and a trustworthy old friend of China, Xi said China attaches importance to the cooperation projects Uganda is interested in and stands ready to strengthen bilateral economic and trade cooperation on the basis of mutual benefit.

China, he said, is willing to work with Uganda and other African countries to bring to fruit the proposed partnership regarding cross-border infrastructure construction on the continent.

Museveni, whose country now holds the rotating chairs of several African regional organizations, said Uganda cherishes the bilateral friendship and hopes for more Chinese support and assistance for the development of both Uganda and Africa.
