Beijing, Feb 28 (Prensa Latina) President Xi Jinping stressed on Wednesday before his Sierra Leonean counterpart, Julius Maada Bio, the pragmatic and multi-sectoral cooperation that unites the two countries.

During a meeting at the Great Hall of the People, the Chinese president emphasized mutual support, “effective cooperation” in economic and social development, and close coordination in international affairs.

Xi referred to the “deep friendship” between the two nations and expressed his desire that this visit would give a comprehensive and profound boost to bilateral relations. As part of his state visit agenda, Bio will also meet separately with other Chinese authorities, including Premier Li Qiang and Zhao Leji, Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress.
