The Belt and Road Initiative is a partnership that is mutually beneficial for Rwanda and addresses Rwanda's development challenges, Rwandan foreign minister Richard Sezibera said Tuesday in Rwandan capital city Kigali.

The Belt and Road Initiative is a good initiative, which addresses development requirements of China's partners, said Sezibera when responding to a question on the Belt and Road Initiative and second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation at a press conference held by Rwandan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

China is an important partner for Rwanda at all levels, and Rwanda welcomes the growing partnership with China, he said, adding that Rwanda and China have important relationships in infrastructure development, party-to-party and people-to-people exchanges, and at the political level.

The second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation is going to be held in April in Beijing.
