BEIJING, July 13 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice President Wang Qishan on Friday met with Botswana International Affairs and Cooperation Minister Unity Dow. He called on the two sides to continue to strengthen political mutual trust, expand pragmatic cooperation, and share development experiences.
Hailing the long-standing friendship and fruitful cooperation between the two countries, Wang said the notion of "building a community with a shared future" should be embodied in bilateral ties and China-Africa relations.
Wang welcomed Botswana President Mokgweetsi Masisi to attend the upcoming Beijing Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) to be held in September, hoping that bilateral ties will be further lifted under the guidance of the two heads of state.
Botswana attaches great importance to ties with China and is firmly committed to the one-China policy, Dow said.
She told Wang that Masisi looks forward to attending the FOCAC Beijing Summit and stands ready to strengthen all-round cooperation with China under the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative.
