The meaning of China-South Africa relations has gone far beyond the bilateral scope and has a global strategic impact, Chinese President Xi Jinping said on Sunday.

Xi made the remarks in a meeting with President of South Africa Cyril Ramaphosa, who is in Beijing to attend the upcoming 2018 Beijing Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC).

Having established diplomatic relations for 20 years, China and South Africa always adhere to mutual respect and mutual trust, Xi highlighted.

The president hoped the two countries could continue to strengthen high-level exchanges, deepen political mutual trust, and make the BRICS cooperation bigger and stronger.

Ramaphosa echoed Xi's stance that China-South Africa relations are based on mutual respect, equality and mutual benefit.

As it is the first time for Ramaphosa to visit China as president of South Africa, he vowed to actively participate in the Belt and Road cooperation and work hard to promote the in-depth development of China-South Africa relations.
