JAKARTA - Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday urged developed countries to fulfill their development aid commitments and increase support to developing nations with no political strings attached.

The South-North cooperation should be based on mutual respect and equality, Xi said at the Asian-African leaders' meeting held here, stressing that developed countries have a binding responsibility to help the developing world and bridge the gap between the South and the North.

Developed countries should increase support for developing countries and help enhance their self-development capacity, he said.

He said Asian and African countries should carry on the Bandung Spirit and promote a new type of international relations featuring win-win cooperation.

By carrying forward the Bandung Spirit, which is unleashing a strong vitality even today, Asian and African countries should strive for a new type of international relations with win-win cooperation at the core, promote a more just and equitable international order, and help build a community of common destiny for mankind, Xi said at the Asian-African leaders' meeting held here.

The President also said that China will provide 100,000 training opportunities for developing nations in Asia and Africa within the next five years.

China will unswervingly push forward Asia-Africa cooperation under the new situation, Xi said at the Asian-African leaders' meeting held here.
