Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived in Kigali on Sunday for a state visit to Rwanda, the first by a Chinese head of state to the African country.

Upon their arrival, Xi and his wife, Peng Liyuan, were warmly received by Rwandan President Paul Kagame and his wife Jeannette Kagame.

The Chinese president said he expects to have deep discussions with Kagame, who is also the rotating chairman of the African Union, on China-Rwanda ties, China-Africa cooperation and other regional and international issues of common concern. Xi said he believes the upcoming visit will deliver fruitful results so as to benefit the two peoples.

Kagame believed Xi’s visit to Rwanda will further push forward the two countries’ friendly cooperation. Since the establishment of their diplomatic relations 47 years ago, China and Rwanda have treated each other as equals with sincerity and friendship.
