China News Service, Beijing, November 20. Wang Yi, State Councilor and Foreign Minister of China, was invited on the 20th to make a presentation entitled "Using Unity to Oppose Division and Promoting Development through Cooperation" at the Global Think Tank Conference on "Controlling Competition, Disagreement and Cooperation under the Global Epidemic Situation" on the 20th. "Video speech.
Wang Yi said that in the past year, with the concerted efforts of the international community, positive progress has been made in the fight against the new crown virus, and the world economy has gradually recovered.
At the same time, the epidemic is still raging, the world is still not at peace, and the risks of group politics and Cold War confrontation are rising.
Countries should join hands to build consensus and form a joint force.
Wang Yi said, we must persist in opposing division with unity.
Faced with global challenges, there is hope for unity, and there is no way out for division.
China has no intention of conflict with any country, and is willing to work with other countries to promote the common values of all mankind, practice true multilateralism, safeguard the international system with the United Nations as the core, defend the international order based on international law, and join hands to build a global village. A community with a shared future for mankind.
We must insist on replacing zero-sum with a win-win situation.
Countries should first strengthen mutually beneficial cooperation and seek common development and prosperity.
Competition will also appear in the process of cooperation, but competition should be positive and benign, and the principle of mutual benefit and win-win should be pursued, and vicious competition that decouples and breaks the link should not be used at all times, let alone force a third party to choose sides in the competition.
China will continue to work with other countries to promote the building of a new type of international relations centered on win-win cooperation.
We must persist in promoting development through cooperation.
The global development initiative proposed by President Xi Jinping has been echoed and supported by the United Nations and many countries. China is willing to strengthen policy communication and coordination with other countries, maintain the stability and smooth flow of the international industrial chain and supply chain, and inject more Chinese impetus into the recovery of the world economy after the epidemic.
We must insist on managing differences through dialogue.
China has always insisted on using dialogue to increase mutual trust, resolve disputes, and promote security.
China is willing to continue to follow the above-mentioned principles to properly handle and manage differences with countries around the world, especially neighboring countries that still have territorial disputes, and jointly maintain regional peace and stability.
Wang Yi said that whether China and the United States can properly handle their relations is critical to the future and destiny of the world. It is the question of the century that the two countries must answer together.
On November 16, President Xi Jinping and U.S. President Biden held an in-depth, candid, comprehensive and meaningful constructive meeting.
The Chinese leaders clarified their position to the US side, drew a clear bottom line, and demonstrated their sincerity in seeking cooperation and properly handling differences.
Both China and the United States believe that the relationship between the two countries is extremely important and cannot be broken; China and the United States need to respect each other and coexist peacefully.
President Xi Jinping solemnly put forward the three principles of mutual respect, peaceful coexistence, and win-win cooperation between China and the United States and four priorities that should be promoted.
These important statements reflect the Chinese leaders' profound thinking on the development and evolution of Sino-US relations, and also clarify the basic framework for the future direction of Sino-US relations.
Wang Yi pointed out that mutual respect is the basic prerequisite for coexistence between countries.
All countries should understand and respect each other in a spirit of tolerance, and should not be condescending or even imposing on others.
Peaceful coexistence is the proper meaning of state-to-state exchanges.
Non-conflict, non-confrontation, and always maintaining peaceful coexistence is a rational choice that China and the United States should adhere to. It is also a way for countries with different social systems to get along.
Win-win cooperation is the correct direction of historical development.
The interests of China and the United States have been deeply integrated. The result of any zero-sum game will only hurt both sides. Only by insisting on mutual benefit can we achieve stability and long-term progress.
Wang Yi said that President Xi Jinping issued a solemn warning during the meeting and expressed a firm stand against the Taiwan authorities' attempt to "rely on the United States for independence" and the movement of some people in the United States to "use Taiwan to control China."
There is only one China in the world, and Taiwan is a part of China.
We will do our utmost to seek the prospect of peaceful reunification, but we will never tolerate any acts of "Taiwan independence" that split the country, nor will we accept "two Chinas" or "one China, one Taiwan" in the international arena.
Wang Yi emphasized that the more clear the opposition to "Taiwan independence" and the more determined measures to stop "Taiwan independence", the more hope is for peaceful reunification across the strait, the more possible the peace and stability of the Taiwan Strait, and the more guaranteed the peace and prosperity of the Asia-Pacific.
Wang Yi said that President Xi Jinping compared China and the United States to two huge ships riding the wind and waves, and pointed out that the two sides must keep their direction steady, not yaw, not stall, let alone collide.
We hope that the United States will agree with its words and deeds, and truly implement important statements such as not fighting the “new cold war”, not seeking conflicts and confrontation, and not supporting “Taiwan independence” into specific policies and actions. Only in this way can China-US relations be stable and far-reaching and benefit both countries. , Also benefit the world.
Wang Yi said that at present, under the background of the evolution of the international structure, two completely different trends and trends have also emerged in the Asia-Pacific region.
One is to focus on mutually beneficial cooperation, seek common development and rejuvenation, and jointly maintain regional peace and stability; the other is to create barriers and divisions, provoke conflicts and confrontations, and engage in small circles of military and political groups.
The first trend is in line with the common aspirations of the region and the common interests of all countries, while the latter will seriously damage the hard-won peace and prosperity of the Asia-Pacific region and should be resisted by the most determined collective.
Wang Yi said that the Asia-Pacific region, especially the most dynamic East Asia region, has formed a regional cooperation platform centered on ASEAN and the ASEAN partnership as the main carrier. The dialogue partnership between China and ASEAN has always played a leading role in regional cooperation. And demonstration role.
China supports the construction of the ASEAN community, supports ASEAN's central position in the regional structure, and supports ASEAN's greater role in the Asia-Pacific region.
We have noted that ASEAN has independently put forward its own Indo-Pacific vision, emphasizing the principles of openness, transparency, tolerance, equality, mutual respect, mutual trust, and mutual benefit, and upholding important principles such as respect for sovereignty and non-interference in internal affairs. These concepts and principles are consistent with The purpose of the UN Charter is also consistent with China's foreign policy philosophy.
Wang Yi said that in two days, China and ASEAN will hold a commemorative summit for the 30th anniversary of the establishment of a dialogue partnership. This is an important and milestone meeting.
President Xi Jinping will attend in person to review with leaders of ASEAN countries the major achievements and useful experience of bilateral relations over the past 30 years, and make plans for future development prospects and point out the direction.
This summit will surely promote the further upgrading of China-ASEAN relations, take new steps towards building a closer China-ASEAN community with a shared future, and will also make new and greater contributions to regional peace, stability and prosperity.
Wang Yi emphasized that the Sixth Plenary Session of the 19th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China has comprehensively summarized the major achievements and historical experience of the party’s centuries of struggle, and clearly pointed out that we must adhere to openness, not close, adhere to mutual benefit and win-win, do not engage in zero-sum game, and adhere to uphold justice. , Uphold justice, maintain world peace through its own development, and push the wheel of history toward a bright future.
China, embarking on a new journey in history, is willing to walk hand in hand with other countries in the world to open up a better future for mankind!
