Football match marks 55 years of China-Burundi diplomatic ties  

KIGALI, (Xinhua) -- Burundi Foreign Minister Ezechiel Nibigira and Chinese Ambassador to Burundi Li Changlin jointly kicked off a friendly football match in Bujumbura, capital of Burundi, on Saturday to mark the 55th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between Burundi and China.

One of the two teams came from the Chinese community in Burundi and the other from the Burundian civil servants. Nibigira and Li presented trophies to the two teams after the match. The Chinese embassy gave the Burundian side footballs as gifts.

As a Chinese saying goes, “Amity between the people holds the key to sound state-to-state relations.” Li told Xinhua that the Chinese embassy expects, through Burundi’s popular sport activity football, to create a friendly atmosphere, close the distance and strengthen solidarity between the two countries.

China and Burundi established the diplomatic ties on Dec. 21, 1963. A series of events have been held to celebrate the anniversary.
