China News Service, Beijing, May 27 (Reporter Liang Xiaohui) Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin hosted a regular press conference on May 27.

  A reporter asked, what is China's response to the China-related policy speech delivered by US Secretary of State Blinken?

  Wang Wenbin: This speech is eloquent and painstaking. In essence, it is spreading false information, exaggerating China's threats, interfering in China's internal affairs, and smearing China's domestic and foreign policies.

The purpose is to contain and suppress China's development and maintain the US hegemony and power.

China is strongly dissatisfied and firmly opposed to this.

I would like to highlight the following points:

  First, mankind has entered a new era of interconnectivity. The interests of all countries are closely related and their destiny is closely linked. It is an irresistible trend of the times to seek peace, development and win-win results.

In the face of a century of changes, to maintain world peace and stability, deal with the epidemic of the century, and revive the world economy, all countries should help each other, unite and cooperate.

The US exaggerating the threat of China will not solve its own problems, but will lead the world to a dangerous abyss.

  Second, the US claims that China is the most serious long-term challenge to the world order.

China was, is and will be a defender of the international order.

What we uphold is the international system with the United Nations at its core, the international order based on international law, and the basic norms of international relations based on the purposes and principles of the UN Charter.

The so-called "rules-based international order" by the U.S. side can be seen by anyone with a discerning eye, but it is nothing more than a family law and regulations formulated by the U.S. side and a few countries, and it only maintains the so-called order led by the United States.

The U.S. has always placed domestic law above international law, and adopted a pragmatic attitude of applying international rules if they are suitable and discarding if they are not. This is the biggest source of chaos in the international order.

  Third, peace, development, democracy, freedom, fairness and justice are the common values ​​of all mankind.

Democracy and human rights are historical, concrete, and realistic, and we can only seek a development path that suits our own country and people's needs.

There is no one-size-fits-all model in the world. No country has the right to monopolize the definition of democracy and human rights, to act as a teacher, or to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries under the guise of human rights.

The United States has a lot of debts and bad track record in democracy and human rights.

  Fourth, China has always adhered to the principle of extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits, and advocates that all countries jointly control the future and destiny of the world.

Countries should establish a partnership of equal treatment, mutual consultation and mutual understanding, and major countries should take the lead in blazing a new path of international exchanges in which dialogue rather than confrontation and partnership rather than alliance.

To engage in "small circles" is to reverse the historical trend, and to pull "small groups" is to move against the historical trend.

The United States concocted an "Indo-Pacific strategy" to lure and coerce regional countries to contain China, claiming to "change China's surrounding environment".

  Fifth, China's diplomacy advocates and practices the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence, and is committed to establishing and developing friendly and cooperative relations with all countries.

The so-called "coercive diplomacy" does not hold China's head.

The United States is the inventor and synonym of "coercion diplomacy", and the coercion targets no matter how big or small, whether near or far, or even friends and foes.

The US is accustomed to bullying and bullying, and the international community suffers from it.

This old American problem is long overdue.

  Sixth, Taiwan, Xinjiang, Hong Kong, Tibet and other issues are purely China's internal affairs.

Solving the Taiwan issue and realizing the complete reunification of the motherland is the common aspiration and firm will of all Chinese sons and daughters, and China has no room for compromise.

The U.S. verbally says it does not support "Taiwan independence", but it says one thing does another, it repeatedly violates its political commitments to China, attempts to hollow out the one-China principle, and encourages the arrogance of the "Taiwan independence" forces. This is what needs to be changed. The status quo is a serious threat to the peace and stability of the Taiwan Strait.

The essence of Xinjiang-related issues is anti-violence and terrorism, de-radicalization, and anti-separatism.

The so-called "genocide" and "forced labor" have long been proven to be lies of the century. The US continues to spread rumors, which will only further bankrupt its own credibility.

Hong Kong is China's Hong Kong, and "Hong Kong people governing Hong Kong" can only follow the Constitution of the People's Republic of China and the Basic Law of Hong Kong, not the Sino-British Joint Declaration.

We urge the US to abide by the basic norms of international relations, stop using the above-mentioned issues to interfere in China's internal affairs, and stop spreading lies and false information.

We would also like to warn the U.S. side not to underestimate the Chinese people's strong determination, firm will and strong ability to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity.

  Seventh, what the US says is "competition", but what the US actually does is to generalize the concept of national security, engage in illegal unilateral sanctions, long-arm jurisdiction and decoupling, which seriously damages the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese companies and unreasonably deprives other countries of their right to development. .

This is not "responsible competition", but a bottomless suppression and containment.

For China-US relations to get out of the current predicament, the key is that the US must abandon the myth of a zero-sum game, let go of its obsession with containing China, and stop its words and deeds that undermine China-US relations.

  China-US relations are at an important crossroads.

Is it confrontation, or dialogue and cooperation?

Is it mutual benefit or a zero-sum game?

The United States should proceed from the common interests of the people of China, the United States and the world, and make the right choice, especially to implement President Biden's "four nonsense" remarks.

We have noticed that Secretary of State Blinken said in his speech that he would not seek conflict with China and a "new cold war", would not prevent China from developing, would not prevent China from playing a role as a great power, and would like to coexist peacefully with China.

We will wait and see.

(Finish)
