On the 26th, the Chinese Consulate General in Los Angeles announced that the airlines concerned had arranged to fly to Saipan on the 28th to receive Chinese tourists stranded by typhoon.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs attaches great importance to guiding the Consulate General in Los Angeles with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and the National Civil Aviation Administration, coordinating relevant airlines, travel agencies and tourism e-commerce platforms, and actively carrying out related work to assist my stranded tourists to return home. The Consulate-General communicates closely with the relevant departments of the United States, keeps abreast of the airports resumption operation time and relevant arrangements, coordinates the proper placement of my detained tourists, properly handles the problems of the expiration of individual Chinese visas, and ensures the safe and orderly departure of our tourists. The 12308 hotline of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the temporary emergency duty telephone set up by the Consulate General in Los Angeles remain open 24 hours and receive the consultation call in time.

The friendship between the two countries has a long history and the foundation of political mutual trust is profound. The relationship between China and Pakistan is not affected by the changing international situation and the changes in the two countries domestic situation. In recent years, high-level exchanges between China and Pakistan have been frequent, and pragmatic cooperation in various fields has developed rapidly. In particular, the construction of the China-Pakistan economic corridor has yielded fruitful results and the friendly ties between the two countries have become increasingly strong. In July this year, Pakistan successfully held a general election, smoothly completing the change of government. The Palestinian government has repeatedly reaffirmed its strong support for Chinas friendship and hopes for more cooperation. China looks forward to taking this visit as an opportunity to fully dock the development strategies of both sides, continue to deepen cooperation in various fields, and push bilateral relations to a new level.
Q: Regarding Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abes proposal of the Three Principles in Japan-China relations, you just said that China welcomed it. Does this mean that China agrees to accept the Three Principles?
A: On Prime Minister Abes visit to China, I suggest that you read carefully the news release issued by China on the meeting and talks between President Xi Jinping, Prime Minister Li Keqiang and Chairman Li Zhanshu and Prime Minister Abe. It has already indicated that China and Japan have reached a high degree of consensus on planning and further deepening Sino Japanese relations. The two sides unanimously affirmed that they will abide by the principles of the four political documents of China and Japan, properly handle the historical and Taiwan issues, safeguard the political basis of bilateral relations, embody a political consensus of mutual cooperation, non-threat and mutual support for each others peaceful development, and constructively control differences. In the spirit of taking history as a mirror and facing the future, we should promote the new development of bilateral relations on the basis of returning to the right track.
The two sides agreed to strengthen high-level leadership in Sino-Japanese relations, carry out pragmatic cooperation at a higher level, promote cooperation in science and technology innovation, energy conservation and environmental protection, old-age care, finance and finance, and further strengthen cultural exchanges. Under the current international situation, we should jointly safeguard free trade, oppose protectionism and take practical actions to promote the process of regional economic integration in the Asia-Pacific region.
Q: Recently, the Sixth Session of the Standing Committee of the National Peoples Congress of China deliberated and adopted the International Criminal Justice Assistance Law and the procedure of trial by default. What is the significance of this to the international anti-corruption work of pursuing stolen goods?
A: The promulgation of the International Criminal Justice Assistance Law and the absence of trial procedures once again released a strong signal from the Central Government of China that if there is any escape, it must be pursued and pursued to the end. The promulgation of the International Criminal Justice Assistance Law and the absence of trial procedures highlighted the consistent position and distinct attitude of the Central Government of China in pursuing and pursuing stolen goods and stolen goods. Cooperation between the two sides will never allow corrupt elements to hide into the determination to escape guilt.
Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, under the organization and coordination of the Central Anti-Corruption Coordination Group, the relevant departments of the Central Government of China have resolutely implemented Chairman Xi Jinpings instructions on strengthening the legal system of pursuing and pursuing stolen goods, actively promoted the construction of the supporting legal system, and promoted the modernization of the national governance system and governance capacity. The promulgation of these two laws and regulations is conducive to the promotion of Chinas anti-corruption international cooperation and the legalization of the work of pursuing and retrieving stolen goods, the fight against fleeing corrupt elements in accordance with the law, and the intensification of anti-corruption international cooperation and the efforts of pursuing and retrieving stolen goods.
Q: It is reported that Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that if the United States withdraws from the China-Direction Treaty, Russia hopes to conclude a new China-Direction Treaty, and the negotiation of the new treaty should be multilateral. Will China participate in the negotiations?

According to the information I have at present, Russia expresses its firm opposition to the US approach to the announcement that the US side will start the withdrawal process from the China-Navigation Treaty. It holds that the US withdrawal from the China-Navigation Treaty is not conducive to maintaining global strategic stability and hopes that the US side will think twice before proceeding.
Q: Last Friday, US President National Security Assistant Bolton said that the US and Greece held a strategic dialogue with Russia to discuss Chinas growing nuclear capability, which poses a threat to Russia. Whats your comment on that?

Should I not comment again?

At that time, politicians, business people and heads of relevant international organizations from more than 150 countries and regions will be invited to attend. As for the specific countries attending at what level, it is decided through friendly consultation on the basis of specific circumstances.
The first China International Import Fair has received wide attention and welcome from the international community. The import fair is also the first in the history of international economic and trade. This fully demonstrates the sincerity, goodwill and confidence of the Chinese government in further opening up, sharing Chinas development Dividends with other countries in the world and realizing mutual benefit and win-win situation.

I would like to reiterate that normal cooperation between China and Iran within the framework of international law is reasonable, reasonable and legal and should be respected and maintained.
Q: With regard to the visit to China by Dias Carnell, Chairman of the State Council and Chairman of the Council of Ministers of Cuba, can you give us some details?

President Xi Jinping will hold talks with President Dias, and other Chinese leaders will meet separately. In addition, President Dias Carnell will also attend the first China International Import Exposition in Shanghai.
