State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi and the European Union’s High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy, Mogherini, met with reporters
International Online Report (China Radio International reporter Zheng Zhi): On March 18, local time, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi and EU High Commissioner for Foreign and Security Policy Mogherini met with reporters and said that I and Moguerini The High Representative firmly believes that cooperation between China and the EU is the mainstream, not only in the past, but also in the present and future.
Wang Yi said that due to different historical cultures, different social systems, and different stages of development, China and the EU will inevitably have differences on some issues. As cooperation continues to deepen, competition will also occur in areas such as economy and trade. This is actually normal. Moderate and benign market competition can inspire us to develop better and make China-EU cooperation more resilient and more dynamic. China is vigorously promoting high-level openness and high-quality development. It is believed that Europe can benefit more from China’s new round of reform and opening up. It also hopes that Chinese companies can be treated fairly, fairly and non-discriminatoryly in Europe. In short, between China and Europe, competition is hard to avoid, cooperation is still the mainstream, and a win-win situation is the goal.
Wang Yi emphasized that the EU faces elections and re-election this year, but China’s EU policy remains stable and continuous. We hope that the EU will do the same. Five years ago, during President Xi Jinping’s visit to Europe, China and the EU agreed to fully implement the China-EU Cooperation 2020 Strategic Plan and build a four-nation partnership of peace, growth, reform and civilization. This is the strategic choice made by China and the EU as the world’s two major forces, two major markets, two major civilizations, facing the changing international situation, and also our historical responsibility for human society. Both China and the EU should join hands and continue to work together.
