Zambia and China are sisters – HH

Filed under: Business,Latest News |

President Hakainde Hichilema (HH) has described the relationship between Zambia and China as that of two Sisters.

Hichilema who won the Zambian presidency in 2021 has been accused of being a friend of the west thus US, UK and European Union.

But Hichilema says he is a friend of both Washington and Beijing. He dismisses assertion that he is puppet of the west.

“Me being a puppet of someone? No. No,” President Hichilema dismisses such assertions.

After a meeting with the Chinese outgoing Ambassador to Zambia today, President Hichilema paid tribute to China.

We were delighted to host the outgoing Chinese Ambassador to Zambia His Excellency Mr. Du Xiaohui at State House this morning as he came to bid farewell after the end of his tour of duty to our country.

Through him, we sent warmest greetings to His Excellency Xi Jinping, the President of the People’s Republic of China and the citizens of that country for the deepening diplomatic and bilateral cooperation between our two sister countries.

We particularly thanked the Chinese government for the great role played in the resolution of our country’s debt restructuring programme.

We also thanked Ambassador Du for the many projects we have initiated between our two countries during his tenure of office and looking forward to more trade and investment for the benefit of our citizens.

We called on our two countries for speedy conclusion of issues in our quest to revitalise TAZARA as Zambia stands ready to iron out any impediments in this project.

We are grateful for the help rendered to us by the Chinese government towards COVID 19, the Cholera situation and now the drought.

Zambia at 60 years, we shall forever work towards enhancing our relationship with China particularly in areas of trade and investment and provide more opportunities for our citizens in both countries.
