On November 23, Wei Fenghe, State Councilor and Minister of National Defense of China, made a speech at the 9th ASEAN Defense Ministers-Plus Meeting on "Strengthening Solidarity and Cooperation to Build Harmony and Security".

  Wei Fenghe said that world peace and development are facing major challenges, and building a community with a shared future for mankind is the right choice and the future lies.

We must be united rather than divided, fair rather than overbearing, open rather than closed, and mutually beneficial rather than self-interested.

  Wei Fenghe emphasized that the Chinese military has always been a force for peace, and the growth of the Chinese military has always been the growth of the world's peace force.

We are willing to work with the militaries of other countries to continue to contribute to world peace.

  Wei Fenghe said that Taiwan is China's Taiwan, and the resolution of the Taiwan issue is the Chinese people's own business, which should be decided by the Chinese.

The Chinese army has the backbone, confidence, confidence and ability to defeat all invading enemies.

  Wei Fenghe pointed out that the defense departments of various countries should further deepen strategic mutual trust and work together to build a solid barrier for universal security.

First, maintain the centrality of ASEAN; second, implement global security initiatives; third, insist on focusing on practical cooperation.
