 Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin presides over a regular press conference on July 27, 2020


This morning, the US personnel withdrew from the Consulate General in accordance with the Chinese request, and the US Consulate General in Chengdu was closed. The Chinese authorities then entered from the main gate and took over. Chinas request that the US side close the Chinese Consulate General in Chengdu and take over the Consulate General is a legitimate and necessary response to the unreasonable act of closing the Chinese Consulate General in Houston and forcibly entering its premises. It is in line with international law, basic norms of international relations and diplomatic practices.

The current situation between China and the United States is something we do not want to see. The responsibility lies entirely with the United States. We once again urge the US side to immediately correct its mistakes and create the necessary conditions for the return of bilateral relations to the track of normal development.

Wang Wenbin: as I said just now, we urge the US side to immediately correct the wrong decision and create the necessary conditions for the return of bilateral relations to the track of normal development.

Wang Wenbin: I dont know about it. However, I would like to point out that, in order to discredit and suppress China, the US law enforcement departments have been constantly hyping the so-called China infiltration and Chinas Espionage problem in recent years, which has reached the point where all the grass and trees are ready to fight and the problem of Chinas spies has reached the point where all people are fighting. As we all know, the United States is rampant in the global espionage activities, even its allies. Theres evidence for all this.

We urge the US side to stop thieves calling for arrest and stop using the so-called spy issue to slander China.

Wang Wenbin: I believe you have seen from the media the relevant information of the Chinese Consulate General in Houston. What I want to say here is that China will make appropriate arrangements for the personnel of the Chinese Consulate General in Houston.

Wang Wenbin: the premises of the Chinese Consulate General in Houston are diplomatic consulates and Chinas state property. According to the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and the Sino US Consular treaty, the US side shall not infringe upon the premises of the Chinese Consulate General in Houston in any way. As for the US sides forcible entry into the premises of the Chinese Consulate General in Houston, China expresses strong dissatisfaction and resolute opposition, and has made solemn representations.

China firmly opposes Australias remarks, which ignore facts and violate international law and basic norms of international relations.

Wang Wenbin: as I said just now, the Chinese Consulate General in Houston is not only the diplomatic and consular premises, but also Chinas state property. According to the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and the Sino US Consular treaty, the US side shall not infringe upon the premises of the Chinese Consulate General in Houston in any way. We express our strong dissatisfaction and resolute opposition to the US sides forcible entry into the premises of the Chinese Consulate General in Houston.

Pompeio slandered the Communist Party of China born for hegemonism not only because of ignorance, but also out of prejudice. Pompeio does not know that the reason why the Communist Party of China has been able to develop from a small party with only a few dozen party members to a large party with more than 91 million members and long-term governance in the country with the largest population in the world is that the Communist Party of China has always put the interests of the people first, and has always shared weal and woe with the people. A recent research report published by the Kennedy School of government at Harvard University points out that under the leadership of the Communist Party of China, the Chinese government enjoys a support rate and satisfaction rate of over 93% among the Chinese people. Recently, Edelman, a well-known public relations company in the United States, also released a trust survey. According to the survey, the Chinese peoples trust in their own government is as high as 95%, ranking the first among the countries interviewed, while the United States is only 48%, the second from the bottom.

The goal of the Communist Party of China is to realize the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, not to replace the United States. In the final analysis, the international status of the United States depends on the United States itself, not on others. The Communist Party of China is a political party that seeks happiness for the Chinese people and strives for the cause of human progress. China is the advocator and practitioner of the five principles of peaceful coexistence and the largest number of peacekeepers among the five permanent members of the UN Security Council. It has played a positive role in peacefully solving international hot issues such as the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue and the Iranian nuclear issue, as well as addressing global challenges such as climate change. In recent years, China has contributed more than 30% to world economic growth He has made great contributions to the Asian financial crisis and the international financial crisis. These facts are obvious to all, and pompeio can not erase them.

Pompeio tried his best to stir up the Anti China Alliance in his speech, but he forgot that mankind has already entered the 21st century, advocating hatred and instigating opposition, which is incompatible with the trend of the times, and it is a reversal of history and unpopular. Pompeio said that he wanted to maintain the so-called democracy and freedom. In fact, he did not represent democracy and freedom. He served for the hegemony of the United States and the interest groups behind him. But today is no longer the time to stir up ideological opposition. The trend of world multipolarization is irresistible.

It has been nearly half a century since President Nixon visited China this year. The development of Sino US relations over the past half century shows that only by treating each other equally and respecting each other can Sino US relations develop steadily and healthily. China has no intention to change the United States, and the United States cannot change China. We are willing to develop Sino US relations with the United States based on coordination, cooperation and stability, but will not accept any bullying and injustice. The Chinese people are not weak and deceiving, and the people of the world are not easily deceived. We urge a small group of us politicians to stop making rumors, slander the Communist Party of China and the Chinese people, and obstruct and undermine Sino US exchanges and cooperation. We call on all peace loving countries and personages in the world to stand up and say no to the crazy acts endangering world peace by pompeio!

Wang Wenbin: the United States has seriously violated international law and the basic norms of international relations, and has launched political provocation first. Of course, China has the right to make reciprocal countermeasures to safeguard Chinas legitimate rights and interests, which is in line with international law and the basic norms of international relations.

Wang Wenbin: as I said just now, the Chinese sides request for the US side to close down the Chinese Consulate General in Chengdu and take over the Consulate General is a legitimate and necessary response to the US sides unreasonable act of closing the Chinese Consulate General in Houston and forcibly entering the Chinese embassy.

Wang Wenbin: on the evening of July 24, Hua Chunying, spokesman of the Chinese Foreign Ministry and director general of the information department, held a video consultation with Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman and director of the information bureau, zaharova.

The current outbreak of novel coronavirus pneumonia is a global pandemic, which poses a global health and life threat. China and Russia are responsible big powers and comprehensive strategic cooperative partners. The information departments of the two foreign ministries have maintained good communication, institutional consultation and cooperation in related fields. In view of the current situation, both sides agree that false information is the common enemy of the international community. All countries should strengthen unity and cooperation, oppose and resist false information, so that rumors, slander and other political viruses and their behind the scenes planners and manipulators can not escape. Countries should release information based on facts, should not pursue double standards, should not interfere in other countries internal affairs, and should not attack other countries political system, development path and national governance based on ideology and political prejudice. The information departments of the two foreign ministries will continue to maintain communication, strengthen cooperation, jointly crack down on false information, restore facts and truth, disseminate justice and jurisprudence, and safeguard morality and conscience.

Wang Wenbin: we have noticed the relevant reports. It is necessary for the Canadian government to explain to the public the problems with the evidence provided by the United States. Of course, we heard that the United States is blocking the Canadian government from doing so. The relevant evidence disclosed by the Canadian court fully shows that the Meng Wanzhou incident is a serious political event fabricated by the United States to suppress Chinas high-tech enterprises and Huawei by abusing the Canada US extradition treaty. At the request of the United States, the Canadian side detained Meng Wanzhou unreasonably, resulting in the current Sino Canadian relations in a dilemma. In fact, Canada has been used by the United States to serve the political purposes of a small number of American politicians and the commercial interests of American enterprises at the cost of the Canadian public interest. This is not only the view of China, but also clearly seen by the international community, as well as many people of insight in Canada and the United States.

It must be pointed out that the longer the incident is delayed, the greater the harm to Sino Canadian relations will be. It is hoped that Canada will fully recognize the political plot of the United States, proceed from the merits of the matter and its own interests, properly resolve the Bangladesh evening boat incident as soon as possible, remove the obstacles to the development of China Canada relations, and take practical actions to push the bilateral relations back on track.

Wang Wenbin: the United States has seriously violated international law and the basic norms of international relations and initiated political provocation first. Of course, China has the right to make reciprocal counter-measures to safeguard its legitimate rights and interests.

Wang Wenbin: the statement made by the relevant personnel of the US side has no factual basis, and it is totally slander.

The Chinese Consulate General in Houston is the first Chinese Consulate General in the United States since the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the United States. Over the past 41 years, the Chinese Consulate General in Houston has always been committed to promoting mutual understanding and friendly cooperation in various fields between China and the United States. It has been actively engaged in Promoting Sino US friendship, which has been fully affirmed by all walks of life in the southern United States. Local media in the United States believe that China is the second largest trading partner in Houston, and the region has benefited a lot from the Chinese Consulate General in Houston, which has become a bridge between Houston and China in terms of tourism, trade and culture. Relevant local U.S. officials also said that they were shocked by the US sides closure of the Chinese Consulate General in Houston, and hoped that the US and China could resolve their differences peacefully and restart the Consulate General in Houston. In the face of the above facts, the relevant accusations made by the US side seem feeble, which is purely if you want to add a crime, you have no reason to worry about it..

I believe you all have seen recently that for a period of time, a small number of American Anti China politicians, out of their attempts to contain China and the motive of seeking private interests, have been concocting remarks that discredit China and have repeatedly escalated the measures of provocation against China. For example, it has imposed unreasonable restrictions on the normal news reporting activities of Chinese media institutions and personnel in the United States, has expelled a large number of Chinese media reporters in disguise, generalized the concept of national security, suppressed Chinese enterprises, wantonly slandered and attacked the Communist Party of China and Chinas political system, and arbitrarily investigated, harassed and even detained Chinese students studying in the United States. It is obvious that the real intention of the above Anti China politicians is to deliberately destroy Sino US relations and reverse history. The US side has been criticized by more and more rational and just people for these abominable acts. On July 25, experts and scholars from 48 countries held a meeting and issued a joint statement, pointing out that the US governments words and deeds against China are becoming more and more radical, which poses a threat to world peace. Any new cold war in any form will completely violate the interests of mankind, support China and the United States to establish relations on the basis of mutual dialogue and work for human solidarity.
