Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi Holds Talks with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken in Beijing

Beijing, April 26, 2024, The Europe Today: Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi engaged in discussions with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Friday in Beijing, marking a significant diplomatic encounter between the two nations.

Wang, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, reiterated China’s steadfast commitment to fostering constructive China-U.S. relations, rooted in a global perspective aimed at building a community with a shared future for humanity.

Emphasizing the consistency of China’s stance, Wang underscored the principles of mutual respect, peaceful coexistence, and mutually beneficial cooperation as foundational to the stable, healthy, and sustainable development of China-U.S. relations.

China’s expectations, Wang stressed, have remained unwavering, urging the United States to respect each other’s core interests and refrain from meddling in China’s internal affairs, impeding its development, or transgressing its sovereignty, security, and developmental interests.

Referring to the San Francisco vision outlined by Chinese President Xi Jinping and U.S. President Joe Biden during their meeting in November of the previous year, Wang highlighted the stabilization of China-U.S. relations and the proliferation of bilateral dialogue, cooperation, and positive developments across various domains, a development welcomed by both nations and the global community.

However, Wang cautioned against the mounting negative factors and disruptions in China-U.S. relations, lamenting the unjust suppression of China’s legitimate development rights and the continuous challenge to its core interests.

The path forward for China-U.S. relations, Wang emphasized, hinges on a pivotal decision: whether to uphold stability or descend into a downward spiral, a choice that underscores the sincerity and capability of both nations.

Wang concluded by articulating the global stakes, asserting that the world is watching to see if China and the United States will lead international cooperation to address global challenges and foster mutually beneficial outcomes, or if they will confront each other, potentially escalating into conflict and resulting in mutual losses.

The outcome of these deliberations carries significant implications for international relations and the collective pursuit of global peace and prosperity.
