On September 19, 2022, President Xi Jinping exchanged congratulatory messages with President Faure Essozimna Gnassingbé of Togo on the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Togo.

Xi Jinping pointed out, China and Togo have enjoyed a profound traditional friendship. Over half a century since the establishment of diplomatic relations, no matter how the international landscape evolved, the two sides have always been sincere and friendly to each other and firmly supported each other on issues concerning respective core interests and major concerns. Bilateral pragmatic cooperation has yielded fruitful results, bringing tangible benefits to the two peoples. In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, the two peoples have helped each other to pull through the difficulties, writing a new chapter of the China-Togo friendship. I attach great importance to the development of China-Togo relations, and stand ready to make joint efforts with President Faure Essozimna Gnassingbé to take the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries as an opportunity to consolidate political mutual trust, deepen cooperation in various fields within the framework of Belt and Road cooperation and the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation, so as to elevate China-Togo relations to a new height and make positive contributions to building an even closer China-Africa community with a shared future.

Faure Essozimna Gnassingbé  expressed, for the past 50 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations between Togo and China, the partnership between the two countries has been steadfast, steady and fruitful. Under the care and with the commitment of the state leaders of the two countries, bilateral relations have witnessed sustained development and growth and yielded fruitful results, benefiting the two peoples. China has always been a key strategic partner of Togo in exploring the path of a comprehensive and sustainable development. We appreciate the fact that China, as always, stands firmly with African countries and stays committed to strengthening the China-Africa partnership and achieving common prosperity. Togo will never waver in its commitment to the one-China principle. I am ready to work with President Xi Jinping to continuously strengthen friendly and cooperative relations between Togo and China.
