Answer: there is only one China in the world. The government of Peoples Republic of China is the only legal government representing the whole of China, and Taiwan is an inseparable part of Chinas territory. Dominica and Taiwan have cut off the so-called diplomatic relations and the establishment of diplomatic relations with Peoples Republic of China. It is fully in line with the norms of international law and international relations and is in line with the fundamental and long-term interests of the two peoples. There is only one premise for China to establish diplomatic relations, that is, to recognize and abide by the one China principle. In the joint communiqu and multi party statements of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Dominica, the government of the Republic of China has affirmed this position. We believe that the establishment of diplomatic ties will open up broad prospects for friendly cooperation in all fields. The establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries is once again confirmed. Adhering to the one China principle is the general consensus of the international community and is the common aspiration of the people and the general trend. Q: it is reported that state councilor Wang Yi visited North Korea today. What are the purposes and issues of this visit? The Chinese side has always emphasized that it will play an active role in the Peninsula issue. What is the specific function? A: Wang Yi, State Councilor and foreign minister, visited North Korea, which is an important measure for China and DPRK to implement the consensus of the leaders of the two countries and strengthen high-level exchanges and strategic communication. The two sides will have an in-depth exchange of views on issues such as Sino DPRK relations and the situation on the peninsula. We will timely release the information about the visit. What role do you ask China to play on the Peninsula issue? China has always advocated upholding the denuclearization of the peninsula, maintaining peace and stability on the peninsula, and advocating a solution to the reasonable security concerns of all parties through dialogue and consultation. In view of the crux of the peninsula, China has proposed a double pause initiative and a double track approach, namely, the parallel promotion of the denuclearization of the peninsula and the construction of a peninsula peace mechanism, and ultimately the long-term stability of the peninsula and the region. We are glad to see that the current situation on the peninsula is moving in the right direction. We hope to work together with all parties to consolidate and continue the positive momentum of the current situation on the peninsula, and to continue to make positive efforts and play a constructive role in solving the issue of the peninsula fundamentally. Q: it is reported that from tomorrow on, the US delegation, composed of high-level economic and trade officials, will carry out economic and trade dialogues between Beijing and the Chinese side. China is led by Vice Premier Liu He. I know that the Ministry of foreign affairs is not in charge of the dialogue, but I still want to ask, what is Chinas expectation of this dialogue? Do you think this dialogue will bring a breakthrough to solve the current Sino US economic and trade conflicts? A: you have just said that the economic and trade issue is the head of the Ministry of Commerce, but since you have asked you, I can confirm that the Chinese side welcomes the US presidents special envoy and the finance minister Mnuchin to visit China in from May 3rd to 4th. Liu He, member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and vice premier of the State Council, will exchange views with the US delegation on Sino US economic and trade issues of common interest. You asked the Chinese side the expectation of this consultation and whether we can make breakthroughs. We have repeatedly demonstrated Chinas views on Sino US economic and trade relations. As the second and the first largest economy in the world, China and the United States properly resolve the problems in economic and trade relations through equal consultations and maintain a stable economic and trade relationship with the United States and the United States, which is undoubtedly in the common interests of the two countries, and is also conducive to the stable growth of the world economy. Considering the complexity of Sino US economy and the complexity of relations, it is not realistic to expect to solve all problems through a consultation. However, as long as the US side comes with the sincerity of maintaining a stable economic and trade relationship between China and the United States, with mutual respect, equal consultation and mutual benefit and win-win attitude, the consultations between the two sides are constructive. Q: taking into account the latest progress made by the leaders of the DPRK and ROK last Friday, does China think it is time to ease the sanctions imposed by the UN Security Council on the DPRK? Do you think the US side is also giving up unilateral sanctions against the DPRK? A: Chinas position on unilateral sanctions is consistent and clear. We have always objected to the unilateral sanctions imposed by one country on other countries according to its own domestic law. A series of positive changes have taken place in the current situation on the peninsula. This is the result of the concerted efforts of all parties concerned. It deserves all the attention and care of all sides. All sides should adopt words and deeds that are conducive to the continuation of the current positive momentum, increase diplomatic efforts and follow the double track and advance way of thinking to synchronize the denuclearization of the peninsula and the establishment of a peace mechanism on the peninsula to achieve a long lasting peace on the peninsula. This informal meeting is novel, meaningful, rich in content, deep in communication, based on the present and for the future, further deepens the friendship and mutual trust between the two leaders, creates a new model for the exchanges between China and India, opens a new page for China India relations, and produces the stability and development of the region and the world. It has a positive impact. China is ready to work with India to intensify the implementation of the important consensus of the leaders of the two countries, and to take this opportunity to open up a new situation of mutually beneficial cooperation in various fields. Q: yesterday, China released Premier Li Keqiangs presence in Japan to attend the seventh China Japan ROK leaders meeting and visit to Japan. Can you make a further introduction to the situation? A: cooperation between China, Japan and Korea is an important part of East Asian cooperation. For 19 years, China Japan Japan and South Korea cooperation has established a comprehensive cooperation system supported by the leaders meeting, 21 ministerial conferences and more than 70 working level consultations, and established the Sino ROK cooperation Secretariat. The three countries had fruitful exchanges and cooperation in the fields of trade, finance, finance, transportation, culture, education, environment, health and disaster management. They signed the China Japan Japan Japan Investment Agreement and held the 13 round of China Japan Japan trade agreement negotiations. Last year, the volume of trade between the three countries reached nearly 670 billion dollars, and the number of personnel exchanges exceeded 28 million. The seventh meeting of China, Japan and South Korea will be held on the morning of May 9th. Premier Li Keqiang, Prime Minister Abe Shinzo and President Wen Zaiyin will attend the meeting of leaders. After the meeting, they will meet with journalists to attend the opening ceremony of the China Japan Japan and Japan Business Summit and address the meeting. Next year will be China Japan Japan cooperation to start 20th anniversary. I believe this meeting will open a new prospect for China Japan ROK cooperation and make new contributions to regional peace, stability, development and prosperity. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Sino Japanese Treaty of peace and friendship. China Japan relations are facing an important opportunity for improvement and development. Thanks to the joint efforts of both sides, Sino Japanese relations have shown an improvement trend. Premier Li Keqiangs official visit to Japan is the Chinese Prime Ministers official visit to Japan after a lapse of 8 years. During the visit, Premier Li Keqiang will hold talks with Prime Minister Abe Shin three, meet with emperor Akihito, and have extensive contacts with Japanese opposition parties and people from all walks of life. We believe that this visit will further consolidate the momentum of China Japan relations, and promote bilateral relations to return to the normal development track and plan for the next development of bilateral relations. Q: it is reported that Chong Wa Dae Korean officials said they need to consider whether China is involved in the future Declaration of final war. How do you comment on this? A: China firmly maintains the peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula, and advocates that the peninsula should replace the temporary armistice mechanism with a lasting peace mechanism. It is hoped that the parties concerned will work together through dialogue and consultation to this goal. China will continue to play its due role in promoting the establishment of a peace mechanism on the peninsula. Q: in April 30th, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu announced relevant materials for Irans secret nuclear weapons research and development program. It is widely believed that in May 12th, President Trump will decide whether the United States will withdraw from the comprehensive agreement, and the move makes the prospects for the comprehensive agreement more unoptimistic. What does China comment on this? A: China has taken note of relevant reports, and has also taken note of the reactions made by the parties concerned. A comprehensive agreement reached between the six countries and Iran in 2015 and submitted to the UN Security Council is just to ensure the peaceful nature of Irans nuclear program. The International Atomic Energy Agency is the only international organization that has the power to supervise and verify the nature of Iraqs nuclear program. We note that the agency has confirmed 10 times in a row that Iran has fulfilled its obligations under the comprehensive agreement. The comprehensive agreement provides unprecedented supervision and verification measures to the Iran nuclear program. It is imperative for all parties to proceed from the overall and long-term perspective and continue to earnestly implement and maintain a comprehensive agreement. Q: in recent years, some Chinese companies have been involved in real estate development projects in Colombo, Sri Lanka, and some of them have been criticized for not taking into account the local environment and conditions. What is the response or evaluation of the Chinese side? A: I understand that the projects you mentioned should be purely business cooperation projects between companies. Do you want to ask the Chinese government to evaluate a specific business project? I think the problems arising from business cooperation should be properly solved by friendly negotiation between the partners concerned. Q: according to press reports, the leaders of the two countries discussed the border issue. In addition, China and India are actively promoting the establishment of the hotline of the supreme commander of the military. Can you confirm and comment? A: during the informal meeting of the Chinese and Indian leaders in Wuhan, the two leaders exchanged views on the international situation, China India relations and other macro issues, reached an important consensus, further established the important guiding principles for the development of Sino Indian relations, and pointed out the direction for the two sides to deal with and resolve the border issues. Both sides agreed to focus on the overall situation, put some problems on the boundary issues into the appropriate position of bilateral relations, discuss the solutions that both sides can accept through communication and dialogue, control the problem before the solution and not expand the problem. The armed forces of the two countries will strengthen the construction of confidence measures and border cooperation and cooperation. This will help to enhance mutual trust and help both sides to deal with the problems in a more mature and intelligent way and maintain peace and tranquillity in the border areas.
