|Wang Yi talks about 2019 China's Diplomacy:Firmly defend our core national interests, Provid a strong support for achieving the two centenary goals|
On December 13, State Councilor and Minister of Foreign Affairs Wang Yi attended the Symposium on The International Situation and China's Foreign Relations in 2019 and deliver a speech. He says, China has firmly defended our core national interests, providing a strong support for achieving the two centenary goals.
Wang Yi says, we have firmly implemented the policy of "one country, two systems", and supported the Hong Kong SAR government in curbing violence and restoring order. We have fought resolutely against external forces interfering in Hong Kong and in China's internal affairs, and pushed back the dark hand instigating a "color revolution" in Hong Kong.
Wang Yi says, we have given a robust response to the slanderous attacks by anti-China forces over Xingjiang. In 2019, up to 1,000 diplomats, journalists and scholars were invited to visit Xinjiang and see the situation there through their own eyes. Facing provocations by some Western countries at the UN Human Rights Council and the UN Commission on Human Rights, China refuted and prevailed over groundless accusations with clear facts, and its just position has won overwhelming support from the international community.
Wang Yi says, last year, China established or resumed diplomatic relations with the Dominican Republic, Burkina Faso and El Salvador. This year, China established relations with the Solomon Islands, and resumed relations with Kiribati. As the number of countries having diplomatic ties with China increased to 180, the one-China consensus is more widely embraced than ever before in the international community.
