BEIJING, April 30 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi held talks with his Rwandan counterpart, Louise Mushikiwabo, on Thursday.
In line with South-South cooperation, China-Africa cooperation aims to be a mutually beneficial and win-win relationship, Wang said.
He said China is an ideal partner for Africa on its industrialization path, and China is willing to help the region with its independent sustainable development.
In recent years, China and Rwanda have strengthened mutual trust, and economic and trade cooperation has been fruitful, Wang said, adding that there is more potential for cooperation in the fields of agriculture, tourism, infrastructure, human resources and health services.
Mushikiwabo thanked China for its assistance and support, and emphasized that capacity cooperation with China would be advantageous for Rwanda.
Capacity cooperation is a program whereby China will export its advanced equipment and technology, to assist regional and foreign development.
Rwanda is willing to take cooperation to a new level, Mushikiwabo said.
The two sides also agreed a political consultation mechanism between the two foreign ministries should be established.
