China News Service, Beijing, February 21 (Reporter Li Jingze) In response to the discussions between the United States, Britain and Australia during the Munich Security Conference, including the purchase of nuclear submarines by Australia, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said at a regular press conference on the 21st that the three countries are based on their own needs. , The practice of doing whatever they want with their own strength can be called the "law of the jungle" in the 21st century.
A reporter asked a question. According to reports, on the 19th, the foreign ministers of the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia discussed the progress of the implementation of the initiatives within the framework of the United States-UK-Australia Trilateral Security Partnership (AUKUS) during the Munich Security Conference, including the issue of Australia's procurement of nuclear submarines.
What is the spokesperson's comment on this?
Wang Wenbin said that the United States, Britain and Australia ignored their non-proliferation obligations, and ignored the general concerns and opposition of regional countries and the international community, and promoted nuclear submarine cooperation in a high-profile manner.
This is a provocation to regional security and a contempt for international rules.
The US-UK-Australia trilateral security partnership once again shows that the rules-based international order claimed by the three countries is not an order that represents the will of the majority of the international community, but an order based on the interests of a "small circle".
The practice of the Three Kingdoms to do whatever they want according to their own needs and their own strength can be called the "law of the jungle" in the 21st century.
Wang Wenbin emphasized that China once again urges the three countries to deal with the concerns of regional countries and the international community in a responsible manner, earnestly respect the efforts of regional countries to build a Southeast Asia nuclear-weapon-free zone and a South Pacific nuclear-weapon-free zone, earnestly fulfill their nuclear non-proliferation obligations, and stop undermining regional peace. Stable dangerous behavior.
