Africa a priority in China's diplomacy: Chinese FM

Chinese FM Visits Africa: Wang Yi Visits Four African Nations

The Chinese Foreign Ministry says Wang Yi's trip to Rwanda, Angola, Gabon and Sao Tome and Principe is meant to promote solidarity and cooperation.

Wang, who is in Africa for his first New Year trip, is scheduled to visit Angola, Gabon and Sao Tome and Principe after Rwanda. He also hailed the good bilateral relations marked by long-time mutual trust, understanding and support.

"China stands ready to be a long term and trustworthy cooperation partner for Rwanda in its development process", he told journalists shortly after meeting President Kagame.

China also hopes to strengthen pragmatic cooperation with Rwanda; to enhance cultural exchanges to boost mutual understanding; and to strengthen communication and coordination to improve joint capacity of handling regional and global challenges, said Wang.

The president thanked China for its investment and financing support, which played a very important role in the peaceful reconstruction of post-war Angola after a 27-year civil war ended in 2002.

China and Rwanda maintain warm bilateral ties, with the former continuing to cooperate with the latter in different sectors such as health, education, agriculture, and infrastructure.

China's December trade with North Korea falls 50 percent
In 2017 as a whole, China's overall trade with North Korea declined by more than 10 percent to about $5 billion, as U.S. The United States and Canada will host a meeting in Vancouver on Tuesday on the nuclear standoff with North Korea.

China was in 2017 the main investor and exporter to Angola.

In March, President Kagame paid a two-day visit to his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, during which the two leaders agreed to strengthen cooperation in areas of industrialisation, agricultural modernisation, infrastructure building, tourism, and security.

China supports Angola in pursuing a development path that suits its own conditions, promoting its economic diversification strategy and enhancing its self-development capacity, Wang said.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi begins his multi-nation trip to Africa with a stop in Rwanda.

The 2015 FOCAC Johannesburg Summit achieved great success, said Wang, adding China is willing to strengthen communication and consultation with African friends to take this year's Beijing Summit to new heights.
