BEIJING, Apr. 22 (Xinhua) — Chinese President Xi Jinping’s speech at an Asian-African summit Wednesday will help carry forward the Bandung Spirit and promote cooperation between the two continents, overseas experts and scholars said.
Patrick Maluki, a lecturer at the University of Nairobi’s school of diplomacy, said the “Look East” policy adopted by many African countries has been inspired by China’s achievements in many fronts.
“The cooperation between Asian and African countries is bound to succeed since we have shared history and future goals,” he said.
He added that guided by the Bandung Spirit, cooperation between Asia and Africa will be further promoted.
… Oh Ei Sun, a senior research fellow at Nanyang Technology University of Singapore and former political secretary to the Malaysian prime minister, said Xi’s reiteration of the Bandung Spirit is of great significance under the current international situation when hegemony still hangs on.
