Beijing condemns US interference and advocates mutual respect


Beijing, 19 March 2024 (TDI): Chinese foreign office spokesperson said, China stands against the interference of United States in China’s internal affairs under the pretext of human rights and values, restraining China’s legitimate right to development in the name of competition. 

The remarks were made by Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Lin Jian, on Monday during the regular press briefing of the foreign office as a response to a question about recent comments from the Ambassador of United States to China, Nicholas Burns. 

Spokesperson Lin said that we noted that Ambassador Burns has recently made negative comments on China on multiple occasions.  

 These remarks deviate from the important common understandings reached by the two presidents of China and the United States at the summit meeting in San Francisco. 

Subsequently, he added that they go against the spirit of the summit meeting in San Francisco and does not serve the sound and steady growth of China-US relations, still less aligned with the right way for the two countries to get along with each other. 

Furthermore, he underscored that China always believes that the bilateral relations should not be a zero-sum game where one side outcompetes the other or thrives at the other’s expense.

We oppose defining the bilateral relations with competition and smearing and attacking China.  

Moreover, Lin Jian, highlighted that China always follows the principles of mutual respect, peaceful coexistence and win-win cooperation proposed by President Xi Jinping in handling and growing the bilateral relations.

And will help to promote the steady, sound and sustainable growth of bilateral relations between the two countries.
