LESOTHO, CHINA COOPERATION CONTINUES TO GROW 

The cooperation and friendship between Lesotho and China is growing from strength to strength in various sectors of development including culture and education, the Chinese Ambassador to Lesotho, Dr Sun Xianghua said.

He said this in his opening remarks at Ningxia Art Troupe performances staged in Maseru on Saturday evening.

Dr Sun said since Lesotho will be celebrating her 51st independence anniversary, the Chinese Embassy in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism, Environment and Culture invited the aforementioned art troupe from China to come and celebrate with Basotho.

He said the cooperation between both countries continues to grow because China and Lesotho are both developing countries that suffered under the colonial rule, adding that they are committed to strive towards development after gaining independence.

Dr. Sun stated therefore that through the visit of the Chinese Art Troupe in Lesotho, cooperation in the areas of art and culture will further be exchanged between the two nations.

He concluded by wishing both countries to maintain the cooperation so that it can last longer for mutual benefits.

Speaking at the same event, the Principal Secretary for the Ministry of Tourism, Environment and Culture, Mrs. Motena Ts'olo said the art troupe has not only visited the country to entertain Basotho but the visit is intended to further up cooperation that exist between the two countries, adding that the cooperation is already a milestone for both nations.

In a cheerful mood, the Chinese art troupe performed dances and acrobatics at the event that was attended by the Minister of Tourism, Mrs. 'Mamotsie Motsie, Basotho and the Chinese community, adults and children.

The Basotho art group was also given the stage and performed the traditional dance known as ndlamo.

The troupe arrived in the country on Friday (September 29) and will also hold two more shows for dignitaries before their departure on Monday.
