President Geingob congratulates Xi Jinping on re-election

President Hage Geingob has congratulated Chinese President, Xi Jingping, who was recently re-elected as the country and Communist Party of China's leader.
Xi's party abolished term limits for the sitting president and vice president positions.
Geingob said that this shows that people have confidence in one centre of power, something that he also had to fight against during Swapo’s congress in November 2017.
Geingob said China is Namibia's all-weather friend and the invitation by Xi signifies great importance his administration places on the bilateral relations.
On his part, the Chinese president said it was about time that the two countries elevate their relations, with a strong emphasis on economics and trade.
The two statesmen are meeting behind closed doors for in-depth talks.
