DRC – China: Tshisekedi to revisit working relationship with Beijing

Tshisekedi, with support from the US, has decided to revisit all the contracts that were signed under his predecessor Kabila, including those with the Chinese. Although Beijing has not officially reacted to the recent statements that the Congolese head of state made against Chinese groups, its diplomats are currently working to resume communication with the authorities and restore collaboration.

Zhu Jing, China’s ambassador to Kinshasa, has met with mines minister Antoinette N’Samba Kalambayi and senate president Modeste Bahati Lukwebo.
