 Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian presides over a regular press conference on October 22, 2020


I would also like to say that if the United States is really concerned about the development of other countries, it should do more practical work and less rumor.

CCTV: this morning, a grand meeting was held in Beijing to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Chinese peoples Volunteer Armys fighting against US aggression and aiding Korea. What is the significance of commemorating the war of resisting US aggression and aiding Korea?

Zhao Lijian: this morning, the 70th Anniversary Conference of the Chinese peoples volunteers to go abroad to fight the war to resist US aggression and aid Korea was held in Beijing. The general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, the president of the CPC and chairman of the Central Military Commission Xi Jinping delivered an important speech. He made a comprehensive review of the great victory and great contribution to the war to resist US aggression and aid Korea, and profoundly expounded the historical significance and the value of the times and the forenoon of the spirit of the war to resist US aggression and aid Korea. It reveals the historical enlightenment of the war of resisting U.S. aggression and aiding Korea, solemnly declares the firm position and determination to safeguard national territorial sovereignty and unity, safeguard regional and world peace and stability, and promote the construction of a community with a shared future for mankind. It emphasizes that we should bear in mind the great victory, dare to struggle and be good at fighting, so as to push forward the great cause of socialism with Chinese characteristics.

The great victory of the war of resisting US aggression and aiding Korea is of great and far-reaching significance to China and the world. It tells the world with iron facts that no matter how powerful any country or army is, if it stands on the opposite side of the world trend of development, bullys the weak, goes against the trend, invades and expands, it will inevitably be hit by a head and a leg. This war once again proves that justice must defeat power, and peaceful development is an irresistible historical trend!

Pull together in times of trouble, as president Xi Jinping pointed out in his speech, the world is the world of all peoples. The difficulties and challenges facing the world require the people of all countries to work together to cope with each other, and peaceful development and win-win cooperation are the right path of the world. In todays world, any unilateralism, protectionism, and extreme egoism cant work at all! Any means of blackmail, blockade and extreme pressure will not work at all! Any act of self-reliance and self-respect, and any act of hegemony, hegemony, and bullying, will not work at all! Its not only impossible, but also a dead end! As a responsible power, China adheres to the common values of peace, development, fairness, justice, democracy and freedom, adheres to the global governance concept of joint discussion, joint construction and sharing, and unswervingly follows the path of peaceful development, open development, cooperative development and common development.

Reporter: U.S. President trump said in the debate with Democratic presidential candidate Biden that look at China, how polluted the air is. How do you respond to this?

Zhao Lijian: everyone just came from outside. I dont know if youve noticed that the sky outside is blue today. We should not be interested in the US election.

Zhao Lijian: Recently, more and more people of insight in Australia have called on the Australian government to adjust its policy towards China and improve Sino Australian relations in line with national interests. These objective and rational voices should arouse the attention and reflection of the Australian government.

We always believe that maintaining healthy and stable development of China Australia relations is in the fundamental interests of the two peoples. Facts have repeatedly proved that good political relations are the basis and guarantee for pragmatic cooperation among countries. It is hoped that Australia and China will go in the opposite direction and do more things conducive to mutual trust and cooperation between the two countries, so as to push China Australia relations back on track at an early date.

Putin said there is a possibility of establishing a military alliance between Russia and China in theory, the Foreign Ministry responded (source: original)

Zhao Lijian: in recent years, President Putin has made positive comments on Sino Russian relations at the annual meetings of the Valdai international debate club, which fully reflects the high level and particularity of bilateral relations.

There is no end to carrying forward the traditional friendship between China and Russia, and there is no forbidden zone for expanding cooperation. Under the strategic guidance of the leaders of the two countries, the level of political mutual trust and strategic cooperation between China and Russia has continuously improved, withstood the test of the changeable international situation, and set up a model of a new type of major country relations. China is willing to work with Russia to fully implement the consensus reached by the two heads of state, constantly enrich the strategic connotation of bilateral relations, help the two countries develop and revitalize, continue to close strategic communication and cooperation, and contribute more positive energy to promoting world peace and stability.

The top priority is for the US side to stop dumping blame, respond effectively to Russias call for the extension of the START treaty, achieve a smooth extension of the treaty, and further substantially reduce nuclear weapons on this basis, so as to create conditions for other nuclear weapon states to join multilateral nuclear disarmament negotiations.

I want to make it clear that Chinas refusal to participate in the trilateral negotiations does not mean that China refuses to participate in international nuclear disarmament efforts. China is willing to exchange in-depth views with all parties on a wide range of issues related to strategic stability and nuclear disarmament within the framework of the five nuclear weapon states and the conference on disarmament.

Shenzhen satellite TV: Recently, Bolivia held presidential and parliamentary elections. According to the preliminary official statistics of Bolivia, we will strive for the Socialist Movement Party candidate and former Minister of economy and finance arse to be elected president of Bolivia. What is Chinas comment on this?

Zhao Lijian: China sincerely congratulates Bolivia on the successful holding of the general election and Mr. Arces victory in the election. China and Bolivia have maintained good cooperative relations for a long time. We hope and believe that in the future, China Bolivia relations will achieve greater development and better benefit the two peoples.

Zhao Lijian: for a period of time, some American politicians, such as pompeio, have been concocting various lies, carrying out vicious attacks on the Communist Party of China and advocating ideological confrontation.

The hysteria of such politicians as pompeio will only inspire the Chinese people to give stronger support to the Communist Party of China and the Chinese government. The survey report of international authoritative institutions shows that the satisfaction and trust of the government led by the Communist Party of China among the people is more than 90%, ranking first among the governments of various countries. Since this year, as you can see, under the strong and powerful leadership of the Communist Party of China, the Chinese people have achieved a strategic victory in fighting the epidemic with one mind and one mind. According to a Singapore poll, the Chinese peoples satisfaction and trust in the Communist Party of China and the Chinese government have reached an all-time high.

I believe that the international community will not be fooled by the lies of pompeio. Not long ago, on the occasion of the 99th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, more than 100 political parties in the world sent congratulatory letters and telegrams to China. They made an objective and positive evaluation of the Communist Party of China. They believed that since the founding of the Communist Party of China, it has made great efforts and great sacrifices to realize national independence and peoples liberation, national prosperity and peoples happiness. The Communist Party of China has rejuvenated the ancient China. Many foreign people believe that under the leadership of the Communist Party of China, China holds high the banner of peace, development, cooperation and win-win results, abides by the foreign policy objective of safeguarding world peace and promoting common development, actively participates in international and regional affairs, and has made important contributions to world development.

Right and wrong are right and wrong, and justice is in the heart of the people. Individual American politicians should listen to the objective and rational voice of the international community bravely and seriously, and look objectively at the achievements of Chinas development under the leadership of the Communist Party of China and its contribution to the development of the world. They should not stick to the narrow corner of Anti China and become isolated against the trend of the times.

Beijing Daily: it is understood that the Brisbane City Council of Queensland, Australia, recently passed the motion of commemorating the 15th anniversary of the establishment of sister city relationship between Brisbane and Chongqing by a high vote. What is Chinas comment on this?

Zhao Lijian: China welcomes and appreciates the adoption of the commemorative motion by the Brisbane City Council of Australia.

The mutually beneficial cooperation between China and Australia and the friendship between the people have laid a solid foundation for the development of China Australia relations. We support the joint efforts of local and people from all walks of life of the two countries to continuously enhance understanding, cultivate friendship and deepen cooperation, so as to accumulate more positive energy for the improvement and development of bilateral relations.

China Daily: some time ago, China Daily released a documentary to expose the Australian Institute for strategic policy (ASPI). Its so-called China related research was funded by the US government and military enterprises, which aroused strong concern from the Australian side. ASPI responded that it was an independent research institution, and China wanted to block criticism from the outside world. What is Chinas comment on this?

Zhao Lijian: the response of this so-called Research Institute is unreasonable. It has always made a living by fabricating various false information related to China, and has been slapped in the face again and again in front of the facts. It claims to be an independent research institution.. Today I would like to share with you: it is neither independent nor research, nor popular in Australia.

It is unpopular because many people of insight in Australia scoff at it. Former Australian Consul General in Hong Kong, Mei Zhuolin, criticized Hamilton for his lack of basic understanding of Chinas political system. Rui Jierui, former Australian ambassador to China, criticized the Institute as the chief designer of Australias China Threat Theory. Former Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr criticized the Institute for having a one-sided, pro american world view..

This so-called Research Institute has long been notorious in China and has become a laughing stock in the international community. I believe that in the future, we will sharpen our eyes, distinguish right from wrong, and jointly resist the rumor making machine and rumor selling machine.

Zhao Lijian: This is really good news. Novel coronavirus pneumonia spreads globally and cross-border direct investment continues to slump, which fully demonstrates the resilience and vitality of Chinas economy. Many foreign-funded enterprises regard China as a haven for cross-border investment, and have increased their investment. For example, a large number of large projects, such as BMW, Daimler, Siemens, Toyota, LG, ExxonMobil and BASF, have increased capital and expanded production in China. From January to September, the profit reinvestment of foreign-invested enterprises increased by 25.5% in US dollars.

This also fully reflects the attractiveness of Chinas super large-scale market to foreign investment and the expectation and confidence of foreign investors in long-term investment and operation in China, indicating that more and more international investors are optimistic about Chinas economic growth prospects and hope to share the dividend of Chinas economic development. China will continue to comprehensively improve the level of opening up to the outside world, provide broad markets and development opportunities for all countries, and help the world economy recover and grow.

On the issue of foreign enterprises in China, the solar energy industry association of the United States called on enterprises to move the supply chain out of Xinjiang, citing human rights violations in Xinjiang. Whats your comment?

CCTV: for some time, some Western politicians and think tanks have repeatedly hyped the issue of forced labor in Xinjiang. We have noticed that the Xinjiang Development Research Center has recently released a survey report on the employment of ethnic minorities in Xinjiang. Whats your comment?

The results of the survey on the employment willingness of ethnic minorities in four prefectures of Southern Xinjiang by the Department of human resources and social security of Xinjiang autonomous region shows that the surplus urban and rural labor force in southern Xinjiang has strong willingness to go out for employment voluntarily. For example, there are 1509 workers in aoyibage village, gulebag Town, Shache County, Kashgar Prefecture, of which 1288 are willing to go out for employment, accounting for 85% of the total labor force; there are 1699 workers in three villages of bagqi Town, Hotan County, Hotan Prefecture, and 1493 people, accounting for 88% of the total labor force.

In the questionnaire survey of 100 ethnic minority farmers in Kashgar and Hotan areas, most of them hope that the government can organize the masses to work and obtain employment. Its not easy for us to find jobs by ourselves, said TASI maimaiati, a farmer in yingawati Township, Shule County, Kashgar Prefecture. I hope the government can help us contact with the work and train us. The two sons of Aiken wubuli kasmu, a farmer in puqiqiqi Township, Moyu County, Hotan Prefecture, worked in an enterprise in Nanjing with the help of the government. My two sons make more money in Nanjing than in their hometown and send money home every month, he said. Our family is out of poverty. I hope the government will organize more people to go out to work.

There are many examples of this report that I mentioned. I will not introduce them to you one by one. The report is in sharp contrast to some anti China think tanks and scholars who concocted the so-called Xinjiang related report by making out of nothing, falsifying data and malicious speculation. This is also a powerful response to the so-called forced labor lies in Xinjiang. We hope and believe that more and more people of insight in the international community will firmly choose to stand on the side of facts and truth and resolutely say no to lies.

CCTV: on the 22nd, assistant to the US Assistant Secretary of state Thompson told reporters that Secretary of state pompeio will visit Sri Lanka next week. The United States encourages Sri Lanka to consider the transparent and sustainable economic development options provided by the United States, rather than discriminatory and opaque practices. The United States believes that it is time for Sri Lanka to make a choice, and urges Sri Lanka to make difficult but necessary decisions, especially on the issue of Chinas influence on Sri Lanka. What is Chinas comment on this?

Zhao Lijian: the remarks made by US officials are full of cold war thinking and hegemonic mentality, which fully exposes the consistent attitude of the United States to interfere in its domestic and foreign policies arbitrarily and to force small and medium-sized countries to stand on the border.

China and Sri Lanka are traditional friendly neighbors. For a long time, the two countries have developed their relations based on the five principles of peaceful coexistence and carried out friendly cooperation on the basis of equal consultation and mutual benefit and win-win results, which has brought tangible benefits to the people of China and Sri Lanka. We will work with Sri Lanka to unswervingly expand and deepen the strategic cooperative partnership between the two countries.

China believes that countries, big or small, have the right to develop foreign relations independently based on their own interests. Any attempt to prevent countries from carrying out normal exchanges and cooperation through pressure and coercion will not succeed, and will eventually be rejected by history and become a laughing stock of the international community.

Surging news reporter: Recently, New York Governor John Cuomo published a new book, the American crisis, reviewing the difficult course of New York States anti epidemic efforts since March this year, criticizing the United States for throwing the pot at China and the World Health Organization (who), saying that the new coronavirus is not a Chinese virus, and condemns discrimination and violence against Asian Americans. He also spoke positively of Chinas achievements in the fight against the epidemic and expressed his gratitude to China for donating a large number of epidemic prevention materials to the United States in times of crisis. What is Chinas comment on this?

Zhao Lijian: Governor Kemo said it very well! After the outbreak of novel coronavirus pneumonia, China adopted the most comprehensive, strictest and thorough preventive measures to safeguard the safety and health of the people. In the open, transparent and responsible manner, the Chinese government informed the international community, including the United States, the information, policy communication and anti epidemic cooperation in a timely manner, which was fully affirmed and highly evaluated by who and many other countries.

At the beginning of the outbreak of the epidemic in China, all walks of life in the United States gave China valuable support and assistance. With the spread of the epidemic in the United States, many provinces, cities, enterprises and organizations in China have also donated anti epidemic materials to the United States. China also actively assisted the US in purchasing epidemic prevention materials in China. I can give you the latest figures: according to the statistics of the Chinese customs, from March 1 to October 18, China exported 37.7 billion masks to the United States, which means that each American has more than 100 masks on average. In addition, there are 740 million pairs of surgical gloves, 560 million sets of protective clothing, 41.54 million pairs of goggles and 11701 ventilators. People from all walks of life in the United States spoke highly of Chinas support for the fight against the epidemic. Dozens of governors, mayors and congressmen, including governor of New York State Mr. Cuomo, expressed their gratitude to China for providing anti epidemic materials and supporting Sino US friendly cooperation in various ways. This is a true portrayal of the people of China and the United States in keeping watch and helping each other and fighting the epidemic together.

Reuters: US Assistant justice minister demos accused China on the 22nd of helping North Korea evade US sanctions and launder money. What is Chinas comment on this?

Zhao Lijian: I dont know what the basis is for the relevant US officials to express their position. Does he have evidence? On the issue of Implementing Security Council resolutions, China has always fully and conscientiously fulfilled its international obligations. There is no doubt about that.

Zhao Lijian: Chinas position on relevant issues is consistent and clear. China believes that maintaining regional peace and stability is in the interests of all parties, including Azerbaijan and Armenia. China hopes that all parties concerned will remain calm and restrained, abide by the hard won consensus on a cease-fire, take measures to avoid further escalation of the situation, and resolve contradictions and differences through political dialogue.

According to the British Consul in Hong Kong, the British National (Overseas) passport (BNO) holders in Hong Kong will be opened to apply for immigration routes from January 31, 2021. What measures will China consider to prevent Hong Kong people from leaving? Will China take other counter measures against Britain?

Zhao Lijian: China has made its solemn stand on relevant issues many times. The British side has broken its promise and acted in its own way, repeatedly hyping the issue of British National (Overseas) passport and interfering in Hong Kong affairs and Chinas internal affairs. In the end, its just going to rock yourself in the foot.

Since the British side has violated its promise first, China will consider not recognizing the British National (Overseas) passport as a valid travel document and reserves the right to take further measures.

Putin: China and Germany are emerging as superpowers, and the United States can no longer continue to dominate

Putin said that Germany and China are emerging as superpowers, the United States can no longer (continue) to dominate , and the role of Britain and France has changed. On the 22nd, Russia today (RT) reported Russian President Vladimir Putins statement on the day.

Screenshot of RT Report

On the 22nd of local time, Putin delivered a speech in the form of video at the think tank meeting of Valdai debate club. His speech focused on the need for cooperation rather than confrontation among countries in the new crown crisis. According to the report, Putin said on the same day that the era when Moscow and Washington decided on international affairs has passed, and China and Germany are also rising to be superpowers.

Vladimir Putin

In terms of its economic strength and political influence, China is actively moving towards superpower status. Germany is moving in the same direction. Putin said the role played by Britain and France in international affairs has also changed significantly.

The United States, which enjoyed absolute dominance in a certain period of time, can hardly mention the exception theory now. Putin added.

Russian media: the Asian version of NATO aims at China, and ASEAN is very uneasy

On October 19, Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Chun Fu (right) met with visiting Japanese Prime Minister Kan Yiwei in Hanoi, capital of Vietnam. Xinhua News Agency / Vietnam News Agency

Traditionally, every new Japanese Prime Ministers first visit to the country is the United States. But these days, Washington has no time to take care of Japan, and the election is in full swing. The result is not only related to the United States itself, but also to the satellite states of the United States. Vietnam and Indonesia, the second tier countries and potential allies of Japans proposed alliance, became prime minister Kans diplomatic debut. However, it is not clear what kind of appearance the new alliance will take.

Despite his claim that freedom and openness in the Indo Pacific region are necessary to maintain its stability, Kan is still suspected of his intention to establish a NATO like military alliance with the United States in Asia and the Pacific. This forced Japans prime minister to reiterate repeatedly that Tokyo was not trying to establish an Asian version of NATO aimed at containing a specific country.

But the influential Japan Times believes that the Japanese Prime Ministers visit is part of Tokyos efforts to strengthen relations with major countries in the region against the background of Chinas increasing aggressiveness. Mr Kan should find a balance between Japans deep economic relations with China and security issues, the paper said. Some in Japans ruling party want to see a tougher line after his predecessor Shinzo Abe improves relations.

Moreover, the Japanese government lifted the ban on the export of Japanese made weapons imposed after World War II, and selling Japanese weapons to Southeast Asian markets was also an important goal of Kans trip. It can be said that the Japanese Prime Minister has achieved some success in this regard, signing relevant agreements with Indonesia and Vietnam.

Such an agreement must be well coordinated with Washington. No matter what the Japanese prime minister says, in the context of deteriorating relations with Beijing, they want to surround China and establish an anti China zone around it. The Jakarta Posts concern that Indonesia and ASEAN as a whole are involved in the Anti China strategy of Washington and Tokyo is entirely reasonable.
