China’s President Xi Jinping has congratulated Emmerson Mnangagwa on his election as Zimbabwe’s President.
Xi offers support after the African nation’s opposition cried foul. State news agency Xinhua has made this known on Tuesday.
“In a congratulatory message dated Sunday, Xi expressed his wishes that the Zimbabwean government and people would make more achievements in national development under Mnangagwa’s leadership,” Xinhua said.
Xi expects to meet Mnangagwa next month when he visits Beijing for a summit of Chinese and African leaders, it added.
“Xi said he hoped the meeting with Mnangagwa in Beijing could push forward the comprehensive strategic partnership of cooperation between the two countries.”
