DAKAR, May 23 (Xinhua) -- German Chancellor Olaf Scholz paid a visit to Dakar, capital of Senegal, on Sunday, as part of his Africa tour that will later take him to Niger and South Africa.

After a joint press conference at the Palace of the Republic of Senegal with Senegalese President Macky Sall, Scholz went to Diass (southeast) for the inauguration of a photovoltaic power plant.

At the joint press conference, Sall expressed his satisfaction with "the quality of bilateral cooperation," saying the visit "reflects the excellent quality of Senegalese-German relations."
