Beijing, December 6 Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Mao Ning said on the 6th that China‘s development is the growth of world peace forces and provides impetus and opportunities for global development. Isolating China and restricting cooperation with China are not in the interests of any party.
Mao Ning made the above remarks at a regular press conference when answering questions about German Chancellor Scholz’s position on China.
A reporter asked: A few days ago, German Chancellor Scholz wrote an article in the “Foreign Affairs” magazine, pointing out that China‘s rise is not a reason to isolate China, nor is it an excuse to restrict cooperation with China. He also mentioned that the current world has not entered a “new cold war”, and he does not agree with the view that China and the United States will confront each other. How does China respond to this?
“We have noticed the relevant statement of Premier Scholz.” Mao Ning said that China adheres to the foreign policy purpose of maintaining world peace and promoting common development, and is committed to developing friendly cooperation with other countries. Facts have proved that China‘s development is the growth of the world’s peace force and provides impetus and opportunities for global development.
She said that isolating China and restricting cooperation with China is not in the interest of any party. In today’s world, the trend of economic globalization is irreversible, and mutual benefit and win-win results are what people want. China has been deeply integrated with the world economy and the international system, and the world will not return to a state of mutual closure and separation. No country can engage in construction with its doors closed. “Decoupling and breaking chains” and “small courtyards and high walls” harm others and benefit itself.
Mao Ning said that China‘s development cannot be separated from the world, and the prosperity of the world also needs China. China will continue to implement high-level opening up and share development opportunities with other countries. “As President Xi Jinping pointed out when he met with Prime Minister Scholz, China has always maintained and promoted world peace through its own development, and China‘s development and the development of the world are mutually integrated and mutually successful.”
