The Chinese Ambassador to The Gambia, H.E Ma Jianchun has told local journalists at a media reception that his country will continue to support its new African ally, The Gambia.
“Since China and The Gambia resumed diplomatic ties three years ago, the bilateral cooperation has yielded tremendous fruits over a very short period of time. The Gambia adheres to the one-China principle, and China is ready to work with The Gambia to continue steering bilateral ties in the right direction, continuously enhance political mutual trust and firmly support each other on issues of core interests and major concerns,” said Ambassador Jianchun.
He said China is supporting the Gambia government’s efforts in achieving the goals of national development, “and is willing to enhance pragmatic cooperation and expand exchanges in all areas with The Gambia.”
