China advocates new type of int’l relations based on win-win cooperation

BEIJING, August 28 (INP): China actively advocates a new type of international relations featuring win-win cooperation, develops all-round friendship and cooperation with other countries, and establishes a global network of partnerships. 

This was stated by a spokesperson of Chinese Foreign Ministry Zhao Lijian at a news briefing on Thursday.

He was commenting on remarks of the US Defense Secretary Mark Esper he made during a visit to Hawaii on Wednesday that China has not lived up to its promises to abide by international law, rules and norms in regard to its military activities.

The spokesperson said, ” The US politician’s remarks on China are completely groundless.

China firmly upholds the international system with the United Nations at its core and an international order based on international law, including a series of international conventions signed within the UN framework. 

China is committed to building a community with a shared future for mankind. 

It advocates an international order that features fairness and justice and calls for global cooperation through extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits and for upholding justice while pursuing shared interests. 

It has all along worked to safeguard the norms governing international relations, the multilateral system and stability of the international order.

The United States, however, always applies international law in a selective way. 

It has withdrawn from more than ten international treaties and organizations, severely undermining international fairness and justice, as well as peace, stability and development in the world.”
