Museveni applauds China for respecting Uganda’s sovereignty
President Museveni has applauded China for respecting Uganda’s sovereignty.
This was at a meeting where Mr. Museveni held talks with a representative from his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping at the State House Yesterday.
Mr. Museveni said unlike other countries, China continues to respect Uganda no matter the situation.
“In his message today he(Jinping) explained the importance of respect for the sovereignty of other countries and we appreciate that. That is exactly our stand. We have been telling some people that if you don’t take your own stand, you are likely to make mistakes,”Museveni said.
Uganda has recently blamed the west for meddling into its affairs as the European Union claimed violation of human rights during Uganda’s 2021 general elections.
However, China has a political non-interference policy in other country’s affairs and the same has been welcomed by the Ugandan government.
Speaking during the meeting, the Chinese President representative said this was his fourth time visiting Uganda, noting that each time he has enjoyed the visits.
“Under your(Museveni) leadership, the people of Uganda have discovered a development path suited to their own national conditions. Uganda is a country that has long enjoyed stability and progress in economic and social development. The lives of people have continuously improved,” Yang said on Sunday.
The Chinese President’s representative also hailed Uganda under the leadership of President Museveni for her efforts in brokering peace in the region.
“Uganda has played an important role in the peace, stability and development of this region. Your re-election last month speaks volumes on the trust the people have in you and to your continued presidency.”
