History of the Embassy of Djibouti

to the People's Republic of China

The Embassy of Djibouti in China was opened in 2001 after the official visit to China by His Excellency Ismail Omar Guelleh, President of the Republic of Djibouti.

The establishment of the embassy in Beijing is mainly based on two considerations — firstly, the deepening friendship and increasing cooperation in various fields between the two countries (deepening trade, increasing students, establishment of the Forum on China–Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) drive forward the cooperation); secondly, the principle of equality, since China has opened its Embassy in Djibouti following the conclusion of the agreement on the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations between the Republic of Djibouti and the People's Republic of China on January 8, 1979.

Prior to 2001, it was the Embassy of the Republic of Djibouti in Japan which covered China and all other Asian countries.
