ADDIS ABABA, July 19 (Xinhua) -- Ramtane Lamamra, Commissioner for Peace and Security Council (PSC) of the African Union (AU), on Friday lauded China's role in ensuring peace and stability in Africa.

In an exclusive interview with Xinhua, the official noted that China has been playing a positive role in supporting the AU's effort in ensuring peace and security in African countries.

Lamamra said that China is committed to supporting the efforts in seeking Africa's solutions to Africa's problems.

"China is a very important partner of Africa. China is a strategic partner of the AU in issues related to peace and security," he said, speaking highly of the close coordination between Africa and China on African issues which are on the agenda of the UN Security Council.

China is one of the five permanent members of the 15-nation UN Security Council.

China has demonstrated "understanding, commitment and support to Africa's solution to Africa's problems," he said.

"But, beyond the constant political support and comprehension, understanding for Africa's solutions, China is also committed with us in implementing those Africa's solutions, bringing about peace, stability and security in a number of African countries," he stressed.

The commissioner stated that China has been constantly and faithfully supporting the AU's operation in Somalia (AMISOM) by providing financial and material support.
