State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi met with Mahamoud Ali Youssouf, minister of foreign affairs of Djibouti, in Beijing on Feb 20.

“China always views and handles its relations with Djibouti in line with the principle that all countries, big or small, are equal, and assists Djibouti in accelerating its development in line with the concept of upholding justice while pursuing shared interests,” Wang said.

Calling China-Djibouti cooperation all-around and strategic, he suggested both sides seize the opportunities of jointly participating in the Belt and Road Initiative and implementing the outcomes of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation’s Beijing summit, to promote the bilateral strategic partnership.

Noting that the sincere and friendly exchanges between Djibouti and China set a model for Africa-China relations, Youssouf said Djibouti would continue striving to develop a long-term strategic partnership with China, and welcomed more Chinese enterprises to invest and set up businesses in his country.
