The Chinese are digging for gold in Africa.

Chinese companies are building railways, roads and bridges across the continent.

So, it is not entirely surprising when the government of the People’s Republic of China on Thursday chose to profess love for us.

The Chinese government said that it would continue to attach importance to the needs of African countries, as China strives to reduce poverty globally.

The Consul-General of China in Lagos, Chao Xiaoliang, said in a publication which was made available to newsmen in Lagos that the profound friendship between China and Africa will remain unbreakable, whatever the situation in the world, or what anyone is saying.

“For China/Africa relations, President Xi Jinping once stated that ‘China and Africa are friends tested by adversity. Such friends must never forget each other’.

“Let me say that the profound friendship between China and Africa will remain unbreakable, no matter how the world may change or whatever others may say.

“As Africa’s brother and partner, China will always attach particular importance to the needs and interests of African countries.

“Let me also say that Africa is an indispensable partner in China’s endeavour to build a global community with a shared future,’’ he said.
