In his remarks Snr Col Xu Jianwei said that the PLA had made historical progress and it played a role in consolidating national defence and supporting national construction. He also said that upon the request of the United Nations, peace-keeping troops from PLA were sent to the African Continent and they made their own contribution to the peace in Africa, having overcome challenges. The Chinese People’s Liberation Army planned to steadily increase its participation in peacekeeping efforts in Africa because the continent’s stability is of global interest.

In conclusion Snr Col. Xu Jianwei said that China particularly wanted to work side by side with South Africa, whose foreign policy was focused on bringing stability in Africa to enhance social development and trade.

Major General Sigudu from the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) in his remarks said that the SANDF would benefit from Chinese military training, discipline and expertise if an exchange programme were initiated. He observed the infrastructure development taking place all over Africa and thanked the Chinese for their contribution to this. He also thanked the PLA for China’s contribution to the military training of cadres of the African National Congress and other liberation movements in Africa.
