China is willing to strengthen security cooperation and enhance dialogue and coordination on major international and regional issues with Djibouti, a senior Chinese military official said.

Fan Changlong, vice-chairman of the Central Military Commission, made the remarks when meeting with Zakaria Cheikh Ibrahim, Chief of General Staff of the Djibouti Armed Forces, on Monday, the Defense Ministry said.

China attaches great importance to Sino-Djibouti relations, Fan said, adding that relations between the two militaries are growing steadily.

The consensus reached by President Xi Jinping and his counterpart Ismaïl Omar Guelleh last year, which includes improving political trust, facilitating pragmatic cooperation, and jointly developing win-win situations and growth in developing countries have pointed the direction for cooperation for the two militaries, Fan added.

Zakaria said Djibouti appreciates China's support in building infrastructure. Djibouti is willing to make joint efforts with China to uphold the consensus made by top leaders, strengthen pragmatic cooperation and boost relations between the two militaries, he said.
