China supports Kenya in combating illegal activities

11 December 2014, 14:38

Nairobi - The Chinese Embassy in Kenya said Thursday China strongly supports Kenya in combating illegal and criminal activities in all forms.

"The Chinese government and people wish to reiterate their support to the Kenyan government to ensure that the criminals are brought to justice," said Mao Yizong, spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy in Kenya.

Mao said that more than 70 Chinese arrested by Kenya police recently very likely belong to a cross-border telecommunication fraud group. He added it is an isolated individual criminal case that will not dent the all-round cooperation that China and Kenya all along enjoy.

"Our two countries enjoy robust bilateral relations and mutual trust that cannot be changed or sabotaged by a single incident. We are already working closely with the government of Kenya, and we thank them for their cooperation in this matter," he said.

"The Chinese community in Kenya strictly complies with the local laws and regulations in their daily life, production and management process, and actively undertakes their social responsibilities. The Embassy and the Chinese community in Kenya will strive to maintain the friendship and brotherhood between the Chinese people and Kenyan people," added Mao.

Mao said trade, investment and people-to-people exchanges between the two countries have increased exponentially on an equal and mutually beneficial basis over the past few years.

"We are confident that both sides will join hands to keep up this momentum. Cooperation will carry on normally in all areas, including Mombasa-Nairobi SGR and many other projects which will benefit all the Kenyan people and contribute to Kenya's social and economic development," he said.
