Despite China-Africa ties evolving and going through periods of disengagement as well as engagement, the discourse has not changed much internally: It consistently articulates China and Africa as long-term friends united in an anti-hegemonic struggle against the domination of the ‘West’. In constructing the discourse, Chinese leaders have mobilised a series of historical and political narratives that have contributed to socialise African actors into China’s worldview. For instance, China and Africa are described as friends, brothers, and partners. They are said to be both affected by, and need to take advantage of, globalization and economic cooperation. They also share a commitment to multilateralism and equal participation in international organisations, especially the UN.
