Berlin, Sept. 1 (Xinhua) — Tian Ying) On September 1, local time, When State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi met with German Foreign Minister Thomas Maas in Berlin, some journalists once again raised issues related to Hong Kong and Xinjiang.
Wang First introduced with concrete figures and facts the reasonability of China’s formulation of the Hong Kong National Security Law to improve Hong Kong’s legal environment, expounded on the positive results achieved by the measures to eliminate extremism in Xinjiang, and stressed that the various policies adopted by China have been widely supported and supported by the People of all ethnic groups in China, including the Hong Kong compatriots. Wang said the European tour has reached a lot of consensus, while some colleagues inquired about China’s xinjiang and Hong Kong affairs, but they all stressed first that they respect China’s sovereignty and have no intention to interfere in China’s internal affairs. I wish to make three points here:
First, state-to-state exchanges should follow the principles of mutual respect and non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries. This is the basic norm for international relations and is enshrined in the UN Charter. On this premise, China is ready for countries with similar interests to engage in exchanges on issues of mutual concern in order to enhance mutual understanding.
Second, when you observe and comment on China’s affairs, you should base your observations on facts and make clear the real situation. You should not listen to partial opinions or send erroneous messages. Spreading and spreading rumors is an extremely irresponsible attitude and shows great disrespect to the efforts of hundreds of millions of Chinese people to realize modernization.
Third, I would like to welcome all of you to Visit China, including Xinjiang. We have invited delegations from more than 90 countries to visit Xinjiang. They differ politically but agree that what they have seen in Xinjiang is not the same as what they have heard before. China is open to the outside world. Friends from all walks of life are welcome to visit China for first-hand experience of its development and changes. Of course, people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang do not welcome wearing colored glasses and assuming a presumption of guilt in advance.
