BEIJING - Chairperson of the African Union (AU) Commission Moussa Faki Mahamat will pay an official visit to China from Feb 7 to 9, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang announced Monday in Beijing.

Moussa Faki Mahamat's visit is at the invitation of Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, the spokesperson said.

It will be Moussa Faki Mahamat's first visit to China since he assumed office.
