BEIJING - Chinese State Councilor Dai Bingguo applauded China-Africa relations on Saturday, while also vowing to back the African Union's (AU) role in African affairs.

He also pledged that China will actively work to facilitate the process of African integration and development.

Calling Africa a reliable friend of China, Dai noted that Chinese people will never forget the support and help given by the African people.
