Fu said that the two countries have a time-honored friendship, and they have had fruitful cooperation in political, economic, cultural, military and other areas since the establishment of diplomatic relations in 1980. He added that leaders of the two countries have had frequent exchanges of visits, and that Chinese President Jiang Zemin and Premier Zhu Rongji visited Zimbabwe in recent years, while Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe visited China six times.

understanding, friendship and cooperation between the two countries, he said.

Shiri said that the Zimbabwean armed forces and people consider China a close friend, and his country highly cherishes the friendship with China, adding that the two countries have had good cooperation in political, cultural, scientific and technological areas. Zimbabwe will continue to pursue the one-China policy, he said.
