China’s Foreign Minister to embark on African tour including Togo

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, a key member of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, is set to visit four African countries, including Togo, from January 13 to 18, following invitations extended to him.

This marks the 34th consecutive year that Africa has been the first overseas destination for Chinese foreign ministers, as announced by the spokesperson for the foreign ministry, Mao Ning, on Thursday.

Wang’s Africa tour will also include visits to Togo, Egypt, Tunisia, and Cote d’Ivoire, showcasing China’s continued commitment to strengthening ties with the continent. This diplomatic journey aligns with China’s increasing emphasis on collaborations in the Global South, as it aims to enhance its influence in the regions.

Following his African engagements, Wang will proceed to Brazil and Jamaica from January 18 to 22. According to Mao, these countries share similar positions on numerous regional and international issues. She stated, “We will take this opportunity to further strengthen the foundation of mutual political trust with the countries and deepen mutually beneficial friendly cooperation in various fields.”
