Mozambican Prime Minister Luisa Dias Diogo on Monday met with Deputy Chief of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) General Staff Liu Zhenwu, with the two sides stressing the importance of further enhancing military cooperation in future.
Diogo said the Mozambique-China friendship can be traced back to the era of Mozambique’s struggle to gain national liberation, while exchanges between the two peoples last even longer.
Since the establishment of diplomatic ties between the two countries, Diogo said, bilateral relations have been developing in a comprehensive and steady manner, with the two nations conducting exchange and cooperation effectively in various fields.
Mozambique highly values its military relations with China, and wishes to further enhance cooperation between the armed forces of the two countries, she said.
Liu said the Chinese side would actively implement the spirits of the Sino-Africa cooperation forum held in Beijing, and keep promoting Sino-Mozambican military cooperation.
The Chinese military delegation led by Liu arrived here on Sunday on a two-day visit to Mozambique.
