Namibia supports China's 12-point peace plan for Russia and Ukraine as part of the Global Security Initiative concept paper.

President Hage Geingob said this in his message of congratulations to his counterpart, Xi Jinping, on his re-election as President and Chairman of the Central Military Commission last week.

The 69-year-old President Xi was voted in unopposed by nearly 3,000 delegates to the Chinese National People's Congress last week, securing a third term.

President Geingob says the re-election is well-deserved and echoes the absolute will of Chinese citizens in President Xi's steady political leadership and effective management of the Asian economic powerhouse.

Dr. Geingob's letter further states that Xi's re-election also comes as the world is facing complex challenges, including the Russia-Ukraine conflict and third-party involvement that could potentially escalate the situation globally.

Last month, the Chinese authorities unveiled their country's vision of common, comprehensive, cooperative, and sustainable security in a 12-point peace proposal.

The 12-point proposal aims to end the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict and prevent future security threats globally, with an emphasis on the connection between peace and development.

President Geingob hailed the 12-point proposal as a noble initiative, with an emphasis on fundamental norms of sovereignty, territorial integrity, and the establishment of a community of shared security for mankind.

Namibia, he says, remains committed to the long-standing fraternal bonds with China, premised on the principals of mutual respect, benefit, peaceful coexistence, and territorial independence.

The letter states that Dr. Geingob looks forward to working with President Xi on deepening bilateral relations under the Comprehensive Strategic Cooperative Partnership.
