China said – do not target the interests of any third country
When asked about China’s reaction to the Quad summit, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said the grouping of four countries should not target any third country and its interests. He said that China always believes that no regional cooperation mechanism should target any third party or harm its interests. The formation of a specific closed group against any third country is against the trend of the present times and the aspiration of the countries of the region. It won’t get any support.
China calls itself the creator of world peace
Defending Chinese claims in the South China Sea, the spokesman said that China is a builder of world peace, a contributor to global development and a maintainer of world order. He said, “China’s development means development for peace and stability in the world and therefore everyone has to see China’s contribution to peace, stability and development in the Asia Pacific… Relevant countries should do more such things.” Which is conducive to solidarity and cooperation with the four countries of the region.
