14th April 2020 (GNP): In a telephonic call with AU commission chairperson Faki on April 13, FM Wang Yi reiterated China’s policy of friendship towards Africa. As brothers and comrades-in-arms, China and Africa have forged time-tested ties too strong to be affected by sporadic incidents or attempts to sow discord, spokesperson said.
He further added that China and Africa have always been good friends, partners and brothers. At our most difficult times, African countries and peoples provided and voices their support and we repaid their kindness when COVID-19 hit Africa. China’s friendly African policy and our friendship remain unchanged.
In this difficult time, China sent rounds of medical assistance to Africa to fight against this pandemic and show solidarity.
