He appreciated China’s support for the country’s economic development and the improvement of the people’s livelihood, saying that the people of Burkina Faso are filled with hope of the future of bilateral ties.
The Chinese state councilor said that Kabore’s major decision of resuming diplomatic relations with China has won unanimous support from the people of Burkina Faso and has been widely welcomed in the African continent.
“History will prove that the resumption of diplomatic ties between the two countries has been a right decision, which fully conforms to the fundamental and long-term interests of Burkina Faso and its people,” said Wang.
Wang said that the resumption of diplomatic relations between the two countries has laid a political foundation for bilateral cooperation, adding that China will do its best to help Burkina Faso in various fields such as economy, people’s livelihood, health and education.
He also said that China is willing to work with Burkina Faso to deepen peace and security cooperation.
Wang also met with Burkina Faso Foreign Minister Alpha Barry and held a press conference together.
“China and Burkina Faso have launched exchanges in various fields and advanced mutually beneficial cooperation in an orderly manner, which are off to a good start,” he said.
Noting that it is the first visit to Burkina Faso by a Chinese foreign minister, Wang expressed hope that the visit will boost the implementation of the consensus reached by the heads of state of the two countries, synergize the results of the Beijing Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) with bilateral cooperation, and bring more benefits to the people of Burkina Faso.
Barry reiterated the country’s firm adherence to the one-China principle, saying the resumption of diplomatic ties has been the country’s own decision made on the basis of the fundamental interests of Burkina Faso.
“Burkina Faso is pleased with the good momentum in bilateral relations and is willing to learn from China’s success in development, Barry said, adding that the country hopes that China will continue to support its economic and social development.
