Chinese President Xi Jinping has told his visiting counterpart from Zimbabwe, President Robert Mugabe, that China is willing to encourage capable companies to invest in Zimbabwe and expand mutually beneficial co-operation.

Xi made the remarks at a meeting with Mugabe at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse in Beijing Monday. Xi told Mugabe that China appreciated the African country's firm support for China on issues related to its core interests and major concerns.

China would continue to back Zimbabwe in safeguarding its national sovereignty, security and development interests, as well as support the development path chosen by the Zimbabwean people, said Xi.

In December 2015, Xi paid a State visit to Zimbabwe and attended a summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation in Johannesburg, South Africa, in which he announced a series of plans to enhance China-Africa co-operation.

The outcomes of the summit and the consensus between him and Mugabe on lifting ties are being actively implemented, Xi said, noting that the two countries had co-operated in infrastructure, agriculture and other fields.

Recalling Xi's State visit and the successful Johannesburg summit, Mugabe said African countries were actively pushing forward the smooth implementation of the major co-operation plans initiated by Xi at the summit.

Zimbabwe is ready to deepen collaboration with China in infrastructure, agriculture and other areas, he said.
