China News Service, October 31. According to the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, on October 31, 2021 local time, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi met with US Secretary of State Brinken in Rome.
Wang Yi said that in the past few years, China-US relations have suffered an overall impact due to the US's wrong China policy.
The U.S. wantonly interfered in China's internal affairs, and the current Congress introduced more than 300 anti-China bills.
The United States has included more than 900 Chinese entities and individuals on various unilateral sanctions lists, which has severely disrupted normal exchanges between China and the United States.
The U.S. is also patching up and suppressing various small circles in China on a global scale, and even exerting pressure on many small and medium-sized countries.
These practices are not in the interests of the people of the two countries, are not in line with the expectations of the international community, and are not in line with the development trend of the times. China clearly opposes them.
Wang Yi said that the important experience accumulated over the past 40 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries is that China and the United States "cooperation will benefit both, and conflict will hurt both."
The truth that the two sides have learned from many contacts in Anchorage, Tianjin and Zurich is that the two countries must respect each other and treat each other as equals.
The Secretary-General of the United Nations has repeatedly called for the world to prevent division and avoid a new cold war.
The important consensus reached by the heads of state of China and the United States during the two calls is that the two sides should restart dialogue and avoid confrontation.
The urgent task at the moment is that the two sides must earnestly implement the consensus reached by the two heads of state, and make political preparations and provide necessary conditions for the next phase of exchanges.
Wang Yi said, I would like to establish regular contact with you to exchange views in a timely and frank manner on how to manage differences between the two parties and properly resolve problems that arise, so as to enhance understanding, eliminate doubts, avoid misjudgments, and explore cooperation.
Wang Yi pointed out that the Taiwan issue is the most sensitive issue between China and the United States.
Once a mistake is dealt with, it will cause subversive and overall damage to Sino-US relations.
Recently, the situation in the Taiwan Strait has become tense again, and the US has repeatedly stated that this was caused by China's changes in the status quo.
This is not a fact at all, but a serious misleading to the international community.
Wang Yi emphasized that the true status of the Taiwan issue is that there is only one China, Taiwan is a part of China, and the mainland and Taiwan belong to the same country.
Historical experience has repeatedly proved that any change to this status quo will seriously damage the stability of the Taiwan Strait and even create a crisis in the Taiwan Strait.
The crux of the current situation in the Taiwan Strait is because the Taiwan authorities have repeatedly tried to break through the one-China framework, and the United States' connivance and support for "Taiwan independence" forces can hardly be blamed.
To stop the development of the "Taiwan independence" tendency is to maintain peace in the Taiwan Strait.
We urge the US to realize the serious harm of "Taiwan independence."
We require the United States to pursue a real one-China policy, not a fake one-China policy; we require the United States to fulfill its commitments to China, rather than treacherously; we require the United States to truly implement the one-China policy into actions, instead of saying one thing and doing one thing. set.
Brinken reiterated that the United States will continue to adhere to the one-China policy.
Brinken said that the United States agrees that the United States and China should develop bilateral relations in a spirit of mutual respect, and is willing to maintain communication with China, manage differences responsibly, and avoid confrontation or even crisis.
Wang Yi also expressed China’s solemn concern on various issues that the US has harmed China’s legitimate rights and interests, and requested the US to change its course and push China-US relations back to the track of healthy development.
The two sides also exchanged views on important issues such as climate change, energy supply, the Iranian nuclear issue, the situation on the Korean Peninsula, Myanmar, and Afghanistan, and expressed their willingness to maintain dialogue on addressing various global challenges.Keywords:
