  A reporter asked a question. January 6 is the first anniversary of the "Capitol Hill Incident" in the United States.

We have seen that over the past year, the United States has witnessed continuous democratic chaos, but the United States has convened a "leadership democracy summit" and promoted the so-called "American democracy" all over the world.

What is the spokesperson's comment on this?

  Wang Wenbin said that the shock incident of the U.S. Capitol one year ago shocked the world and caused deep thoughts.

A recent survey by the National Public Radio of the United States shows that 64% of Americans believe that American democracy is in crisis and faces the risk of failure.

The Pew Center poll shows that 57% of international respondents and 72% of Americans believe that the United States is no longer a so-called "model of democracy."

According to a poll conducted by Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government, only 7% of young Americans believe that the American democratic system is "healthy", while more than one-third of young people believe that in their lifetime they will see a "second civil war" in the United States.

These figures reflect the general concerns and strong doubts of the American people and the international community about American democracy.

  Wang Wenbin pointed out that American democracy is riddled with flaws, and the "Kabul moment" when the U.S. troops hurriedly withdrew from Afghanistan even more exposed the serious harm caused by imposing American democracy on others.

But what is unbelievable is that instead of drawing lessons, the U.S. pretends to be a "democratic leader" and launches the so-called "leadership democratic summit." The society was generally criticized and opposed, and it ended in a hasty end.

  Wang Wenbin said that democracy is the common value of all mankind, not a tool for political manipulation.

There is no superior democracy in the world, and there is no universal model of democracy.

The right way to realize and develop democracy is for people of all countries to independently explore the road to democracy in accordance with their own national conditions.

Labelling, politicizing, and weaponizing democracy is not a big game, but a trick. It will only expose one's ugly face of false democracy and true hegemony to the world more clearly.

  Wang Wenbin emphasized that what the US needs to do is to put aside its arrogance and prejudice, abandon selfishness and hegemony, face its own "democracy deficit", respect the right of all countries to explore and develop a democratic path that suits their own national conditions, correct the wrong practice of forcibly transplanting American democracy abroad, and stop Dangerous acts of creating division and confrontation internationally under the banner of democracy.

  "China is willing to work with all parties to guard the true democratic spirit, to resist the pseudo-democratic and anti-democratic practices that are drawn by ideology, and to work together to promote the democratization of international relations, so that democracy will no longer be a tool to divide the world." Wang Wenbin said.
