    Wang Yi said that in recent years, China-Norway pragmatic cooperation has made positive progress. Last year, the bilateral trade volume increased by nearly 40% year-on-year. The negotiation of the free trade agreement has entered the final stage, and the new version of the double taxation agreement is about to be signed. In the face of changes and chaos in the world, stability and confidence are more important than gold. The two sides should respect each other and treat each other as equals, enhance understanding, eliminate misunderstandings, maintain the sound momentum of healthy and stable development of China-Norway relations, strengthen exchanges at all levels, and promote practical cooperation for more results. China is willing to strengthen communication and coordination with Norway in multilateral institutions such as the United Nations, and jointly practice true multilateralism.

    Witfelt said that Norway is pleased that the two sides have overcome the epidemic and continued to promote bilateral relations. Norway and China have great potential for cooperation in areas such as climate change, economic transformation, renewable energy, and green development. They look forward to speeding up the negotiation of a free trade agreement with China and continuing constructive cooperation.

    Wang Yi said that China has played an important role in promoting the conclusion of the Paris Agreement, and will continue to demonstrate its responsibility as a major country and shoulder its due responsibilities for the future of mankind. We adhere to the path of green, low-carbon and sustainable development, and set ambitious dual-carbon goals, which will achieve the highest reduction in carbon emission intensity in the world. We vigorously develop renewable energy, with wind power and solar power generation ranking first in the world, and new energy vehicle production and sales ranking first in the world. It is expected that developed countries will honor their commitments and provide financial, technological and capacity-building support to developing countries.

    Witfelt said that Europe is deeply worried about the current situation in Ukraine and hopes that China will play an important role. Wang Yi expounded the principled position of the Chinese government, emphasizing that the “four shoulds” proposed by President Xi Jinping are the fundamental principles of China‘s handling of the Ukraine issue. The international community should support all efforts that are conducive to peace and respond well to the challenges posed by the spillover of the crisis to world economic recovery. China will continue to play a constructive role in persuading peace and promoting talks in its own way.
