President Xi Jinping called on Thursday for China and the Republic of Congo to explore new growth drivers for their cooperation in the digital economy and green development, while strengthening their partnership under the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative and the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation.

Xi made the remarks during a meeting in Beijing with President of the Republic of Congo Denis Sassou Nguesso. He said the Republic of Congo is an active participant and important partner in the joint building of the Belt and Road.

The two countries have achieved tangible results in advancing cooperation by upholding the spirit of the Silk Road, which features peace and cooperation, openness and inclusiveness as well as mutual learning and mutual benefit, Xi said, adding that the successful implementation of projects such as the No 1 National Highway in the Republic of Congo is exemplary.

Noting that China and the Republic of Congo are true friends and good partners, Xi said that China values the friendship between the two countries and is willing to strengthen their pragmatic cooperation.

China appreciates the resolute support given by the Republic of Congo on issues related to its core interests and major concerns, and it supports the African country in safeguarding its independence, opposing foreign interference and adhering to a development path that suits its national conditions, Xi said.

China also supports the Republic of Congo in playing a greater role in international and regional affairs, and is willing to develop multilateral cooperation and coordinate with it to promote the construction of a more just and reasonable international order, he added.

Sassou Nguesso said the Belt and Road Initiative is a great project that provides the world with a new model of inclusive development.

Underlining that China is a major contributor to global economic growth, he said his country is willing to seize the opportunity of celebrating the 60th anniversary of diplomatic ties next year to further bilateral relations.

The Republic of Congo firmly adheres to the one-China policy and looks forward to continuing mutual support with China, and strengthening pragmatic cooperation in infrastructure, green energy and other fields, he added.
