Chinese FM elaborates three objectives of his visit to Africa

MOMBASA, Kenya, Jan. 6 (Xinhua) — Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Thursday made clear three objectives of his visit to Africa when meeting with Kenya’s Cabinet Secretary for Foreign Affairs Raychelle Omamo in Kenya’s coastal city Mombasa.

Wang Yi said that China’s diplomacy has a 32-year-old tradition, that is, the destinations of its first visit at the beginning of the year must be African countries. The tradition shows with concrete actions that China cherishes its traditional friendship with Africa, attaches priority to Africa in China’s diplomacy, and is willing to be a good friend and partner of Africa.

“In spite of the challenges posed by the pandemic, we have come here as scheduled, come rain or shine, and remain true to our original aspiration. This is the undertone of China-Africa friendship,” said Wang, adding that “my visit to Africa has three main objectives.”
