 China will encourage the Security Council to relax sanctions on the DPRK? Ministry of foreign affairs response


Q: we learned from the website of the Ministry of foreign affairs that a major traffic accident occurred in North Korea last night, causing heavy casualties. Can you introduce the situation and the cause of the accident? What does the Chinese government do for this? What did the DPRK do? A: last night, 32 Chinese citizens and 4 Korean workers were killed in a major traffic accident on the North Road in the Yellow Sea, North Korea. 2 Chinese citizens were seriously injured, and the situation was extremely critical. We would like to express our deep condolences to the unfortunate Chinese compatriots and Koreans and express our sincere condolences to the injured and the families of the victims. At noon today, the Ministry of foreign affairs sent a working group of medical experts to the DPRK to work together with the DPRK. The Chinese government has always attached great importance to the safety of overseas Chinese citizens. After the incident, the Ministry of foreign affairs and the Chinese Embassy in Korea started the emergency mechanism for the first time, together with the relevant departments and places, and carried out the emergency disposal and aftermath of the accident. The DPRK also attaches great importance to this major traffic accident. The relevant departments of the DPRK actively cooperate with the Chinese side in carrying out the treatment, rehabilitation and accident investigation. We will maintain close communication and coordination with the DPRK and do our best to follow up. Q: I want to confirm the death toll in major traffic accidents in North Korea. Are the 32 of them all Chinese citizens? Do you still include North Koreans? Will the Chinese party organize the families of the victims to the DPRK? Which areas are the victims of death and injuries coming from? A: so far, the victims include 32 Chinese citizens and 4 DPRK staff. From the beginning of the news last night, the Chinese Ministry of foreign affairs and the Chinese Embassy in China started the emergency mechanism for the first time, carrying out the emergency treatment of the injured and the necessary protection of the remains of the victims, while keeping close and coordinated with the DPRK on the work of the aftermath and the investigation of the accident. At present, the related work is still in progress. If we have further information, we will announce it in time. Q: it is reported that Prime Minister Modi of India will hold an informal meeting with President Xi Jinping this weekend. The outside world, including a lot of multimedia, is very concerned. When Premier Modi visited China last time, President Xi Jinping invited him to visit Xian, because Xian had many historical and cultural relics and had deep historical origins with India. So why did we choose Wuhan as a meeting place this time? In the preparatory process, China and India have maintained close communication. They have communicated well with each other on the relevant arrangements, including the choice of time and place. Both sides have good intentions and have reached many consensus. I believe this will be a successful meeting to provide further impetus for the development of bilateral relations. Q: the Ministry of foreign affairs yesterday released the news of Wang Yis State Councilor and foreign minister meeting with Burmas former president, Thein Sein. We know that President Thein Sein has stepped down from office. Why did he come to China? Do you visit China as a special envoy of the government of Burma? A: yesterday, State Councilor and foreign minister Wang Yi met with Burmas former president, Thein Sein, and we have already released the news. This is a friendly meeting. Wang Yi, State Councilor and foreign minister, said that the friendship between China and Myanmar has a long history and a deep foundation. Under the joint efforts of the leaders of China and Myanmar, the two countries have made considerable progress in their overall strategic cooperation. We are willing to work together with Myanmar to promote the construction of the economic Burmese economic corridor, to carry out the implementation of major projects, and to inject new vitality into the economic development of Burma. The two sides also talked about some issues of common concern in Burma, such as the peace and reconciliation process in Burma, the relations between Bangladesh and Bangladesh. China supports the process of peace and reconciliation in Burma, supports the further improvement of relations between Bangladesh and Bangladesh and properly handles the problems between the two countries. As for your mention of President Thein Seins departure from office, in fact, Mr. Thein Sein is an old friend of the Chinese people. China has a good tradition. For old friends, whether he is in office or outgoing, we are willing to keep in friendly contact with them as long as they are willing to actively promote a good cooperative relationship between China and the countries concerned. Q: we note that yesterdays State Councilor and foreign minister Wang Yi announced that the leaders of China and India will hold informal meetings. What is the main discussion of the meeting? A: when Wang Yis State Councilor and foreign minister met with foreign minister svalg yesterday, he jointly issued the news that President Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Modi will hold an informal meeting in Wuhan in from April 27th to 28th. After the release of the news, China and India and the international community are highly concerned. China and India are both ancient civilizations and important neighbors. They are all over 1 billion of the population level. As the two largest developing countries and important emerging market countries, China and India have a lot of common interests, common concerns and common ideas in the context of the profound evolution of the current international situation and the outstanding uncertainty of uncertainty. The two countries are not only the backbone of promoting world multipolarization and economic globalization, but also important forces for promoting peace, stability and development in the region and even the world. At the press conference of the two foreign ministers yesterday, both sides also believed that the strategic and global significance of China India relations became more prominent. The common interests of China and India were far greater than differences. During this meeting, President Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Modi will carry out strategic communication around the unprecedented changes in the world today, and exchange views on the overall, long-term and strategic issues of the future development of China India relations, to hold a big direction for the development of Sino Indian relations, set new goals and open a new situation. We believe that this meeting will further promote the development of Sino Indian relations, benefit the two countries and the people of the two countries, and will also have an important positive impact on the peace and development of the region and the world. Q: can you give us more details about the major traffic accidents in North Korea? What is the main cause of the accident? According to media reports, the reason for the accident is that the bus capsized from the bridge. Can you confirm it? How many passengers are there in the car? A: such a serious accident not only concerns the families of the victims but also the whole society. As I have already said, under the precondition of doing a good job of emergency disposal, especially the rescue work of the wounded, the two sides of China and the DPRK are working closely together to carry out other related and aftermath work, including the investigation of the cause of the accident. Please understand that we can not disclose before the investigation has reached a solid conclusion. Q: last Saturday, North Korea made a decision to stop nuclear tests and missile tests, and a spokesman for the Chinese foreign ministry made a statement. Do you have any further comments on the Chinese side? Against this background, what is Chinas view on the international communitys pressure on the DPRK? Some Chinese media believe that the international community should encourage North Koreas actions by lifting some sanctions. What is Chinas comment on this? A: regarding the great decision made by the DPRK in the third Plenary Session of the 7th CPC Central Committee, the Chinese Ministry of foreign affairs has responded in a timely manner. I would like to reiterate that the Central Committee of the Korean labor party welcomes the cessation of nuclear tests and intercontinental ballistic missile tests, to focus on the development of the economy and to improve the living standards of the people. I believe you have also noticed that all the international community have welcomed. So far, we have not seen any one who said they did not welcome or oppose it. We believe that the relevant decisions of the DPRK will help further ease the situation on the peninsula and help to promote the process of political denuclearization and the political settlement of the Peninsula issue. Achieving the denuclearization of the peninsula and lasting peace in the region are in line with the common interests of the people in the peninsula and in the region as well as the common expectation of the international community. As you mentioned the view that after the DPRK made this major decision, whether the international community should mitigate or partly abolish sanctions on the DPRK, China has always advocated that: first, all the resolutions of the Security Council should be carried out accurately and completely, and the resolution of the Security Council not only includes the nuclear program for the development of the DPRK. The content of sanctions is also encouraged to take all measures that will help to realize the denuclearization of the peninsula and regional peace and stability. Second, the decision made by the DPRK is in line with the common expectations of the international community. The international community has reasons to encourage all parties to move towards each other and make joint efforts to eventually bring the issue of the peninsula into the track of political dialogue and peaceful settlement. Q: do you mean that the Chinese side will encourage other members of the Security Council to show their stance and relax sanctions against North Korea in some way? Q: we note that the State Department of the United States recently issued the report on the rights of others in 2017. There are comments that the report magnifies the criticism of American strategic opponents, but is silent on the human rights issue of the United States itself and its allies, and the United States has lost the moral legitimacy of his country on the human rights issue. What is the comment of the Chinese side? A: the comment on the report issued by the United States in your question does reflect the views of many members of the international community. The United States has issued this report year after year, which has been criticized by other countries. Most members of the international community have always been disgusted with it. This years report has continued to ignore facts and prejudice. We have made a solemn negotiation to the United States and made clear to the United States that it was in vain to try to interfere in the internal affairs of China and influence the development of China in this way, and it was not possible to succeed in the future. The Chinese government attaches great importance to the protection and promotion of human rights. Since the founding of new China, especially in the past 40 years of reform and opening up, Chinas human rights cause has made historic progress, and the Chinese people have the most say in this regard. We agree that all countries should carry out dialogues and exchanges on human rights issues on the basis of equality and mutual respect so as to achieve mutual reference and common improvement. At the same time, most countries in the international community, including China, have always opposed the politicization of human rights issues. Q: you mentioned that the leaders of China and India will discuss the profound changes and common challenges facing the current international situation. What changes have taken place in the international situation? Why the Chinese and Indian leaders chose to meet now? Will we discuss issues such as free trade, protectionism, American leadership and the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue? A: at the press conference yesterday, the State Councilor and foreign minister of Wang Yi made an introduction to the significance and consideration of President Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Modis forthcoming informal meeting in Wuhan. The leaders of the two countries will fully exchange views on issues of common concern. This is also the intention of arranging the informal meeting. As you mentioned the international background of the informal meeting between China and India, and what issues the leaders of the two countries will discuss in this context, you know, in fact, that the international community is indeed faced with the rise of unilateralism and the rise of protectionism. This trend has aroused widespread concern and widespread concern in the international community. China and India have a lot of common attributes. All two countries are developing countries, both are emerging market countries, both are large population countries, and in international affairs, especially on the multilateral stage, both sides advocate world multi polarization. Both advocate the continued maintenance of economic globalization and promote globalization further towards the direction of open, inclusive, universal, balanced and win-win. As I have just said, the common interests, common concerns and common views of the two countries are a lot. The leaders of the two countries will exchange views on the overall, long-term and strategic issues of China India relations. At the same time, they will also carry out in-depth communication on the trend and trend of the world, in order to strengthen cooperation and jointly promote the world. The sector is heading towards a more peaceful, stable and prosperous direction. Question: whether the leaders of the two countries intend to release the signal to the United States, that is, the protectionism of the US side will pose a danger to the international community? Answer: I cant predict what the leaders will talk about. The leaders of China and India will conduct in-depth communication on some global and strategic issues. As for the result, I can not predict it now, but I believe you will hear very positive information. Source: Ministry of foreign affairs web site editor: Wang Zheng _NN7526
