Chinese Premier to visit Africa

 

Delegation led by Ambassador Ji Peiding and Ambassador Lv Fengding at the press conference.


Chinese Premier Li Keqiang will embark on a four nation visit to Africa. The visit which begins on May 4 2014 will include Ethiopia and the African Union (AU), Kenya, Angola and Nigeria.

At a press conference held at the Chinese Embassy in Pretoria, South Africa, Ambassador Ji Peiding and Ambassador Lv Fengding of the Foreign Policy Advisory Committee of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of The People’s Republic of China discussed ‘China’s Africa Policy and China-Africa Relations’. They were in Africa preparing for the visit of Premier Li Keqiang.

In his remarks Ambassador Ji Peiding said China and the countries in Africa were developing nations and should support each other, co-ordinate their positions and argue for equal treatment in the world, explaining that there are no conflicting interests between China and Africa.

He pointed out that global bodies and international organizations are gradually being influenced by emerging nations as the new reality in the world takes hold.

The relations between China and Africa that once were only political have been overtaken by economics and this was the key to the engagements and interactions said Ambassador Peiding.

He also recognized that people to people exchanges apart from official exchanges will strengthen relations between the people of Africa and China.
